Pixel Trail is a dedicated team of geography and technology enthusiasts on a mission to change the way people interact with GIS data. Our platform is continuously evolving to empower people to solve location problems and position explorers for success.
Pixel Trail was founded over a decade ago with the idea that leveraging geography is a radically different way to do business. Geography does not exist to simply represent where stuff is on earth; it exists to solve our planet’s largest challenges and push people to explore unimaginable frontiers.
