Ellipsis Drive is here for spatial data worth sharing.

We imagine a world where all you need to exchange, view and edit spatial content, is a browser and a link.

Our mission

For the advancement of people, planet, and technology, spatial data needs to be activated, findable, and usable. For everyone. Together we have the answers, so collaboration is key.

However, sharing data between organizations, professional groups, and even teams can be really frustrating as traditional GIS solutions are complex, expensive,  incompatible with standards outside its own silo. Therefore we are on a mission to:


Create value for people with data worth sharing

Be the most value added place to activate spatial data that needs to be seen and used.


Get your content connected

Publish any spatial data in under 10 minutes, findable and usable for anyone you target.


Support Plug & Play use

Give you a frictionless data activation experience, whatever your starting point may be.


Safeguard platform independence

Maximizing interoperability is at the center of what we do. That's how you stay relevant.


Ensure a real time experience

Drives allow you to work together in real-time. Ellipsis Drive is no different.


Remain licence free

No ‘’by seat’’ license fees apply. Not now, not ever. So don't hold back and let the sharing begin!

You activate it, you own it!

Ellipsis Drive has a simple storage-based business model: you pay a monthly fee for the amount of data in your Drive. That’s it. The number of people you share content with, or how that content is being used, is up to you and does not affect fees in any way.

We offer the vault, but you keep the keys!
