About Us


What we want...

We would like to make geodata visualizations possible for everybody and for every situation and, in accordance with the principle of "Think Global - Act Local", pave the way for map visualizations from every corner of the globe. We will make this application accessible for everyone through its special ease of use, its multifaceted usage options, and our affordable pricing.  

Who we are...

Building our start-up team would have been impossible only 10 years ago, since we are a virtual team that develops gisChart scattered over three continents. With gisChart, we would like to show you that virtual start-up teams are able to efficiently and successfully develop a real product. We are able to achieve this since we are all service-oriented, maintain a communicative and open attitude among each other, and take advantage of modern communications technology.
