MAPCITY HISTORY

Mapcity was born from the company Ingeniería y Sistemas SA Gráficos (ISG), founded in 1994, one of the leading companies in Chile dedicated exclusively to providing solutions based on Geographic Information Systems (GIS). This company provided development services and support for geographical solutions, primarily for the utilities, telecommunications, forestry, mining and government.

In 1998 ISG developed the first chilean location website(www.mapcity.com), which currently receives about 3 million hits per month – being the most used of its kind in the country – and is the undisputed reference for these services in Chile. This project later led to the Mapcity company, which currently has a presence in major countries of the region and local companies with offices in Chile, Peru, and Colombia.

Next year, Mapcity will be adding a third country outside of Chile: Mexico, along with a local partner.
