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.
Looking at the list of companies by category, earth observation tops the list with 181 locations. GIS / spatial analysis locations rank second with 140 locations.
Rieke has also create an interactive map so users can browse the data. To access, click on the image below.
