Spatial Insights, Inc. announces the availability of a customized geographic information (GIS) application used to monitor compliance with the federally mandated Community Reinvestment Act (CRA).

The CRA application integrates Census demographics with mainframe based loan information. The system calculates mandated variables and automatically produces maps at the Census Tract level that show the geographic distribution of loan characteristics relative to prescribed demographic variables.

Although this system was originally developed for CRA compliance, the system has also been used to evaluate market penetration and as a tool for defining locations suitable for the placement of bank branch offices.
