Our story

In 1993, Dany Bouchard founded DBx GEOMATICS inc., which at first was a consulting business in geographic information systems (GIS). In the beginning, the company was working mostly with federal government clients that had a need for custom GIS solutions. Through the end of the 90’s, the company was one of the first to develop web maps with Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG). Surrounded by talented software engineers, the company then decided it was time to improve the technology available to create web maps and visualize data.

Elegant web maps

The CartoVista software was born after several years of research and development in web mapping innovation. “We saw a need to create fast and elegant web maps that are well suited for business decision making” said Dany Bouchard. The first version of the CartoVista software was launched in 2010 with desktop components. Throughout the years, the CartoVista software evolved, allowing governments and more and more businesses to visualize their strategic data in innovative ways. In 2016, the company rebranded to CartoVista and started to work with customers worldwide in 7 languages, across all continents.
