Geocentric helps organizations communicate geographically through websites and interactive maps. Our core offering, Citylight, is a web based data management platform for geographic content like directories and calendars. We work primarily with non-profit organizations who are working to promote their neighborhoods and improve the quality of urban life.
We have been fortunate to work with over 40 different Business Improvement Districts. Our current clients include organizations such as: Downtown Boulder Partnership, Central Atlanta Progress, Liberty Station San Diego, Capitol Riverfront BID, Downtown Raleigh Alliance, Downtown Akron Partnership, Rosslyn BID, Nashville Downtown Partnership, Downtown Tempe, The Cherry Creek North BID, and Downtown Santa Barbara.
In addition to our core with Downtown Organizations, we've also done interactive and mapping “special projects” for other organizations including the State of Maryland Office of Tourism, the State of Maryland Office of Economic Development, Marriott International, Feeding America, Major League Baseball, and JBG Smith.
Geocentric was established in 2006 with the vision of enabling clients in economic development and destination marketing to self-publish and self-manage high quality interactive content, especially geographic content, in their websites.
The company was launched with initial support from the University of Maryland's Dingman Center for Entrepreneurship. We are a 2009 graduate of the Silver Spring Innovation Center, a business incubator operated by the Montgomery County, Maryland Department of Economic Development.
Our first product was a vector-based mapping engine for Adobe Flash called SWFmap. Today, our geographically aware Content Management System, Citylight®, powers interactive mapping and web marketing for Business Improvement Districts across the United States.
