This paper summarises the development of a framework of geographic factors which are used to inform the development of a Spatial Decision Support System for the promotion of Inward Investment. First, a literature review identified potentially relevant theories of factors influencing regional development and competitiveness. Drawing from this review, we developed a geospatial framework which incorporates data requirements that were gathered from a user requirements study carried out with Think London, London’s inward investment agency.
