Map of Geospatial Companies Around the World

| |

Christoph Rieke has assembled a growing list of commercial geospatial companies with offices located all around the world.  Each listing has been categorized (e.g. GIS / spatial analysis, Earth Observation, Digital Farming/Agtech, Webmaps/Visualization, EO Satellites, UAV/Aerial, Geodata Infrastructure).  

A Google Sheet also contains information about the focus of the company and a determination of the office locations size (small, medium, or large).

While the list is certainly not complete, it represents a substantial effort by Rieke to track and map out where geospatial companies are operating.  Of the 465 locations on the list, almost 30% (137 locations) are located within the United States.

Out of the 465 geospatial companies on Rieke's list, the US has 137 locations, followed by Germany with 56.
