U.S. Cluster Mapping Tool
The U.S. Cluster Mapping Project is a landmark joint partnership between the Harvard Business School and the US government, created to give businesses access to new tools to compete in an increasingly competitive global economy. 
How does it work? In short, the project uses over 50 million open data records to identify “clusters” of related industries that can be hubs of innovation, jobs and private investment.
