All you need to make a custom map like the one above is some data and knowledge of copy and paste—no code required.

Here’s how we made it:

Whether your preferred platform is Excel, Google Sheets, or another option, start with a spreadsheet. We added the GIS companies that G2 ranked in the top 20 for Satisfaction with separate columns for each piece of information. Most important are columns for city, state, and country—or other location data.

From there, simply:

  1. Select (Ctrl+A or Cmd+A) and copy (Ctrl+C or Cmd+C) your data
  2. Open your web browser and navigate to
  3. Click on the location data box with the example data in it, then paste (Ctrl+V or Cmd+V) your own data
  4. Check to make sure you have the proper location data columns available by clicking “Validate and Set Options”
  5. Select the proper location column from each drop-down
  6. Click “Make Map” and watch as the geocoder performs its process

Once mapped, trends you may have otherwise missed in “spreadsheet mode” become clearer. For example, we can see that of the top 20 GIS companies in Satisfaction, 13 are based in the U.S., including nine based in California, and two in Massachusetts.

Outside of the U.S., brands headquartered in the United Kingdom, Canada, France, India, Singapore, and Sweden also made it in the top 20 GIS companies.
