Top 20 GIS Tech Companies - 2018

The proliferation of GIS in the global market has compelled organizations of all business verticals to rethink decision-making based on spatial or geographic data. As the need for well-defined asset information grows by leaps and bounds, GIS is playing a crucial role in integrating a wide range of data sources, from legacy systems to image data, and to make complex data more quickly and easily understood. It’s no longer a secret that the scope and utility of GIS information are limitless, and hence, incorporating a combination of GIS and Business Intelligence in project strategy and planning is a prudent move for gaining a leading edge. Besides, Business/Economic GIS—as it has come to be known—is being effectively used by businesses for advertising and marketing, sales, and the logistics operations. Moreover, GIS has proven to have a substantial influence on geography and will be a key technology in the future as it allows users to efficiently answer questions and make decisions by looking at geospacial data in the form of tables, charts, and maps.

To help CTOs, CIOs, and CEOs find the right GIS solution provider, a distinguished selection panel comprising of CEOs, CIOs, VCs, industry analysts, and CIOReview magazine’s editorial board has selected a list of GIS solution providers that exhibit innovative technologies and strategies.
