They can be used to assess the presence of both competition and demand. Many GIS databases are accessible only by subscription. Google Earth, a free resource, was used in this demonstration.

Will the increased number of cars driven by customers dropping off and picking up dogs cause congestion? Will the amount of water used for all that grooming overwhelm the existing sewer lines? Will better cared-for dogs be calmer, reducing the need for police or animal control services?
