POBTop100InsideLogoPOB (Point of Beginning) magazine is conducting a surveying and mapping market study that will rank the top 100 companies based on total geospatial revenue for 2014.

Michael Anderson, editor of POB, will be presenting the “POB Top 100″ project at MAPPS and the National Society of Professional Surveyors (NSPS) national surveying, mapping and geospatial conference, Collaboration: The Map of the Future, to be held April 13-16 at the Hilton Crystal City in Arlington, Va.

Rankings will be based on total revenue from surveying, aerial mapping, geospatial imagery, 3D modeling, BIM, GIS/IT, underground mapping and other geospatial services.

“Collaboration is key to success in the geospatial community,” said John Palatiello, MAPPS executive director. “We’re pleased POB has chosen this forum to help launch this important project.”

Collaboration: The Map of the Future will bring together associations, professional societies, companies and government agencies in the surveying, mapping and geospatial fields. The event hopes to bridge gaps between government agencies and the private sector, as well as explore different disciplines in the community. It also will prove a forum for discussions on best practices, technology, issues and policies.

The conference features a “conference within a conference” format, in which participating organizations will hold respective meetings and sessions.

“Surveyors have long relied on POB as a major source of news and information about the profession and its market study and Top 100 listing will be a significant contribution,” said Curtis W. Sumner, LS, executive director of NSPS.
