Cities covered by our projects


  • «Geointellect™.cloud» is the software service with geoanalytical tools and integrated geodatabases that provide better location overview. It summarizes statistics on residents, employed population, target audience presence. One can easily get the access to information about publicity of location, cities infrastructure as well as the performance modeling of a particular shop (predictive analytics), measures of the quality of life in the neighborhood and other geoanalytical indicators. You can look at our samples of Geodatabase in Geointellect.Cloud
  • Clients use a customized «Geointellect™.cloud» (SaaS) in small or medium business (franchising) for geomarketing (a new location assessment) as well as for target audience analysis to adjust the assortment and geo-target advertising (geotargeting).
  • Tasks mostly focus on geomarketing – a quick and precise reasoning of the location choice for new shops as well as for assortment matrix and advertising campaigns adjustment around existing in such branches as >>
  • «Geointellect™.cloud» may be used by large companies as well if they don’t want to launch corporate geoinformation platforms and integrate them into their business processes.

Geointellect™.Cloud – How does it work?

For a big company

1. A big client (or sometimes a regular one) needs to get a location analysis (a new place or a current one).

2. The client visits our website and calls our manager–analyst.

3. Our manager-analyst helps to choose a suitable service for the particular task and/or connects production managers to solve more complex issues (options).

4. Signs a licensing contract for a period, sets up the system in the Dashboard, and follows-up regularily (1, 3, 6, 12 months).

5. The client can use a “Geointellect” mobile app connected to the web service as a way to collect data “in the field”.

For a small company

1. Small and regular clients need to analyze a location surrounding the premises.

2. A client visits geointellect.com, pays per 1 day or 2 days and calls our manager—analyst for web.app or downloads a “Geointellect” mobile app. Sales turnover from Google/Apple Stores.

3. The client opens the map and sees both houses.

4. For mobile.app the client pays for a particular type of business, e.g. chemist’s.

5. The client clicks on the house and Geointellect summarizes geofactors of the nearby neighborhood and predicts the sales turnover for the “chemist’s” segment after one downloading payment. You can repeat this operation for several objects in the same city.

6. If the client needs some other business, e.g. “public catering”, he/she pays again.


  • If big companies want to launch the «Geointellect™.cloud» inside the corporate data network and integrate it with other information systems, we offer a «Geointellect™.platform» as a packaged software aimed to automate the business process of search and analysis of nearest places around the large companies / large shops (banks, gas stations, etc.) in many cities all over the world.
  • «Geointellect™.platform» – is a Location Intelligence software, which includes:

    • a mobile app for geodata collection «in the field»,
    • a web app with deep geoanalytics tools and spatial datasets,
    • a control panel for managing geodata access roles of particular territories and, sometimes, available geodatasets / relevant geodatasets sets according to territories.
  • All the other companies that have systems like ERP, CRM, BI or GIS can use our flexible API.Geointellect™ to integrate and enrich their systems with new analytical tools, models and geodata, including partner’s geodata:

    • mobile Data,
    • online cash registers,
    • City infrastructure data,
    • smartphone signals data, etc.

Web app Geointellect™.Cloud

  • Geointellect™.cloud (web and mobile apps) are based on GEO.AI – an artificial intelligence which can analyze locations and give a result in the form of sales turnover prediction or a target audience portrait.
