IDC Innovators: Location and Geospatial Intelligence, 2021
IDC Innovators are emerging vendors with revenue <$100 million that have demonstrated either a groundbreaking business model or an innovative new technology — or both. This IDC Innovators study profiles CARTO, Capella Space, Inpixon, IQGeo, and xyzt.ai in the rapidly developing area of location and geospatial intelligence.
"The availability and applicability of location and geospatial intelligence are booming right now," says Lynne Schneider, research director, Location and Geospatial Intelligence at IDC. "This is not an entirely new market, but the interest in this area had been largely concentrated with GIS professionals. As the use of location-enabled data moves more mainstream, we see a rapid increase in the need for location and geospatial data, mapping and navigation, location-enabled developer platforms, and location analytics and visualization. There are really exciting developments in this space."
