MapD is at the forefront of location intelligence for big data, combining unprecedented volumes of geospatial and BI data in one interactive experience.

Map Billions of Data Points. Billions, with a B.

MapD is a radical geospatial analytics breakthrough, enabling you to visualize up to billions of data points on maps, with zero latency interactivity. Chart and map many layers of data from multiple sources.


See Geospatial Data in Context

MapD geo charts cross-filter by any non-geo factors that make mapped data meaningful. See important information in its location, and when you move to a new location see how the data changes.

Explore Across Space and Time

MapD gives you the unparalleled power to filter big geolocation datasets across time. By brushing across a time-series graph, watch how a location changed over days, months or years. It only takes you a second.



"This is a watershed moment for geospatial analytics. MapD is probably the most important advance in the last 15 years for a geospatial analyst who needs to tear into very large data tables and get answers in real time."
- Rich Sutton, VP of Geospatial, Skyhook

Detect Network Anomalies

The Challenge

Telecommunications networks transmit data from multiple towers to handsets that then report signal strength back to towers. Network operations centers (NOCs) monitor this interchange to identify instances of poor signal strength. Legacy analytic solutions cannot query and visualize call detail records (CDRs) or network logs quickly enough for NOCs to fix issues before customers notice.

MapD Solution

Network signal strength constantly fluctuates by location, over time. MapD lets NOC teams query and explore CDRs and network data on geo charts to understand where anomalies occur and then resolve them. Those responsive geospatial analytics help telcos dispatch service teams to where they’re needed most, keeping customers happy.

OmniSci overcomes the data challenges of speed, scale, and real-time interaction, to provide telecommunication carriers instant insights from datasets too big or too fast for traditional analytics platforms.

Logistics and Readiness for Military Operations

The Challenge

Logistics is the single greatest determinant of operational readiness. DoD and DHS continually plan and execute port activities, establish distribution networks, and initiate military operations. Yet these operations are often performed in legacy, stove-pipe systems that don’t provide a true view of situational awareness. Because of these stovepipes, analysis is inefficient without trends to optimize placement of resources, and they are ineffective without predictive maintenance to prevent equipment, and mission, failure.

MapD Solution

MapD gives leaders the ability to exploit and analyze global logistics operations data through rapid crossfiltering of large and disparate datasets. This provides tactical decision making to guide troops and supplies, optimize networks, assess infrastructure, predict maintenance needs, and meet strict timelines. These operational analytics are layered over geographic datasets, to support real-time logistics operations regardless of the mission.

Government: Respond Rapidly to Extreme Weather

The Challenge

The impact of blizzards, wildfires and hurricanes are difficult to predict or track at a local level. Mainstream analytics cannot query or visualize weather disasters quickly enough for precise evacuation alerts that can save lives. This pre-aggregated view of weather forces citizens and first responders to react after people are already at risk.

MapD Solution

MapD renders new forms of sensor and IoT data along with traditional sources on interactive weather dashboards. Microclimate mapping refreshes by the minute and gives government officials and first responders geolocation insight to keep people safe. Dynamic weather maps also show airlines, construction businesses and insurance companies how to assess property risk posed by extreme weather.

Actionable Intelligence and Analysis

The Challenge

Today’s information environment poses a unique challenge to the warfighter. An avalanche of intelligence collect, across every discipline, contains actionable intelligence critical to mission success. Yet traditional analytics tools are too slow, bulky, and costly to glean these insights, or to quickly and accurately visualize it all For real-time situational awareness.

MapD Solution

Only MapD provides the SQL engine capable of exploiting this trove of data collected, and visualizing it all at the speed of thought. MapD gives analysts and leaders an interactive dashboard capable of ingesting and visualizing vast amounts of data from multiple sources. They can toggle layers of data across a single geochart, to derive actionable intelligence and insights for mission success.

Urban Planning and Development

The Challenge

As the world’s population continues to grow and more people move to megacities, urban planners face the strain of accommodating more residents in the same urban area. This is arguably the most critical issue facing governments, as growing populations increase strain on utilities, energy, transportation, housing and health resources. City planning departments need a new form of location intelligence to meet this challenge.

MapD Solution

Only the MapD platform gives city leaders the ability to query and visualize their large geospatial datasets at the speed and scale necessary to keep pace with urbanization. MapD provides the ability to ingest massive location datasets from disparate sources, and cross-filter that to see how crime, public health, homelessness and education outcomes vary by location.

Location Intelligence for Upstream Exploration

The Challenge

Geospatial information drives every phase of upstream exploration and production (E&P) in the oil and gas industry. The mapping, leasing, site preparation and drilling phases all have the potential to generate huge volumes of data that geologists and project managers can use to reduce costs and improve yields. Yet the wealth of data flowing from sensor-enabled machinery, geologic models, and seismic software overwhelms the standard tools designed for an earlier era when all data was less abundant and location data was particularly difficult to integrate into operations.

MapD Solution

MapD visual analytics help decision makers slice through the largest spatial datasets, accelerating geospatial analytics and data science. It provides oil and gas companies the ability to visualize all of their data, to improve efficiencies around exploration and field operations. It provides these companies an analytics dashboard to reduce costs, mitigate risks, and optimize production.

Information Dominance in the Battlespace

The Challenge

Battlespace awareness is critical to shortening decision cycles and to making better decisions than one’s adversaries. Intelligence teams must rapidly sense, collect, process, analyze, evaluate, and exploit streaming data. Yet today’s information-intensive operating environments overwhelm mainstream geospatial tools, slowing time to analysis and intelligence cycles during mission-critical moments.

MapD Solution

MapD is the extreme analytics platform that enables intelligence analysts and commanders to query, visualize, and interact with big geolocation datasets with zero perceptible latency. This gives intelligence analysts visual exploration at the speed of thought, through an intuitive, easy-to-use dashboard, powered by the most advanced analytics engine on the market.
