a division of IT research and advisory firm Info-Tech Research Group, has published its 2021 Geographic Information Systems Data Quadrant Awards, naming two vendors as gold medalists. The following vendors are leaders according to the feedback provided by their end users via SoftwareReviews’ comprehensive online survey. Vendors are rated on product features, vendor capabilities, and the relationship with their software partner:

  • Hexagon Geospatial
  • Maptitude

What makes the SoftwareReviews Data Quadrant different?
The study involves gathering intelligence on user satisfaction with both product features and the experience with the vendor. Aggregated emotional response ratings are included in the areas of service, negotiation, product impact, conflict resolution, and strategy and innovation to create a powerful indicator of overall user feeling toward the vendor and its product – all from the software users’ point of view. SoftwareReviews calls this insight the Net Emotional Footprint.

Hexagon Geospatial Solutions, with a Net Emotional Footprint of +90, ranked strongly on data integration GIS and imaging and production. Maptitude, with a Net Emotional Footprint of +81, scored top product in many areas, exceeding user expectations on breadth of features and map customization.

In general, GIS software users were most satisfied with data visualization features that provide users the ability to change views including color, pattern/icon, dot-density, chart, scaled-symbol, and 3D prism themes -- and were most dissatisfied with the lack of availability and quality of training.
