Our day started with some awesome news from Geoawesomeness! We are excited to share that SocialCops has made it to the Top 100 Geospatial Companies and Startups list by Geoawesomeness, a popular location-based blog that writes and features some of the best work done in the areas of geospatial technologies — GIS, maps, location-based applications, geomarketing, drones, and remote sensing.

“In addition to recognizing geospatial companies that are doing good work, the Top 100 Geospatial Companies and Startups list are intended to showcase the length and breadth of the industry and to serve as a reminder that geospatial applications and services are used by a wide variety of customers.”

A panel of 16 people from across the world working in the industry reviewed hundreds of companies to come up with the Top 100 Geospatial Companies and Startups list for 2019. The list features SocialCops along with some of the most inspiring companies working in the areas of geospatial intelligence. The list includes Google, Foursquare, Carto, Autodesk, Mapbox, and Microsoft among others. We are so honoured to have made it to the list and hope to continue doing some awesome work with the power of maps! You can access the complete list here.
