The Sector Mapping Tool uses data visualization and heat mapping to align Hawaiʻi’s economic and workforce needs with academic offerings and production at UH, making a clear connection between jobs and academic programs.

“The sector mapping tool will benefit our academic program planning at the community colleges, and it can inform policy decisions inside and outside of the university,” said UH Vice President of Community Colleges John Morton. “It provides a means for the business sector and the university to identify and address future workforce needs while giving incoming students the ability to make highly informed, career path decisions.”
