Help us identify the Top 100 geospatial companies and startups in the world!

At Geoawesomeness, we have always loved talking to companies and startups working with location data. Over the years, we had the privilege to talk to and blog about several companies in the industry who have gone onto change the status quo and created a name for themselves. Back in 2016, when Aleks created the list to answer the question – what are the top 100 geospatial companies and startups in the world?”, we didn’t know that it will go on to become one of the most read articles on the site. Yeah, it has been more than two years since the first list was published and we need your help in updating it.

Why create such a list?

The primary objective of the list is to create awareness of the length and breadth of the industry; to serve as a database for people looking to keep updated about the industry. We are least interested in comparing companies and giving them a rank. We believe that the list is a step towards creating a comprehensive map of the industry (pun intended! ;-))!

Help us identify the Top 100 geospatial companies and startups in the world!

How can you help?
  1. Do you think a company deserves to be on the list? Let us know or better still forward them the link to this Google Form which has a few questions about their business and mission. We will review it and get in touch with them.
  2. Want to be involved more directly in shaping the list? We would love to talk to you! Here’s the email address where you can reach us.

What are the criteria for a company to be featured on the list?

The Top 100 Companies will be decided by a panel of GeoGeeks from across the world based on their expertise and knowledge of the industry.

We are always open to any questions or suggestions that you might have for us.

Map shows all possible impact zones of Hurricane Florence in real-time

The United States is right now bracing for Hurricane Florence, a category 2 storm expected to unleash catastrophic rain on the East Coast. If you have friends or family living in the region or want to see which areas will be impacted by punishing rains and winds, Esri has released an interactive tool that shows the extent of probable storm-surge.

Called Hurricane Florence Error Cone: Projected Impact, the map pulls in forecast storm positions for cyclones in the Pacific, Atlantic, and Indian basins from the National Hurricane Center and the Joint Typhoon Warning Center.

At the time of writing this post, Hurricane Florence was likely to impact 17.3 million residential places and as many as 44.4 million US citizens were in the danger zone. About 125,000 social and health organizations and 39,000 educational institutions also came under the impact area.

Currently, the impact zone looks like this:

The map also provides other helpful insights into the lives of people who would be impacted by Hurricane Florence. And these insights can prove critical for rescue agencies working in the area, allowing them to make the pertinent arrangements in advance.

For example, while the median household income of those being impacted is $52,000, of the 17.3 million houses in the danger zone, 2.2 million live in poverty. This means they will not have enough financial resources to deal with the aftermath of the storm and rebuild their lives. Further, the map reveals that 7.1 million people living in the impact zone are senior citizens, or above 65 years of age. These are the people who may require a higher level of assistance during evacuation or rescue operations.
