The Difference between a Marketplace, a Reseller and Ellipsis Drive

In the quickly evolving world of geospatial technology, it is easy to lose track of the different businesses and business models within our space.
The matrix below helps you understand the key differences between a marketplace for spatial data, a data reseller, and Ellipsis Drive.
Marketplaces connect buyers and sellers directly but offer little in terms of helping buyers to be successful with their acquisition. Marketplaces and Resellers also take a percentage of sales revenues to support their business model.
Ellipsis Drive on the other hand connects buyers and sellers directly without taking a share of the transactions. Furthermore, our platform is designed to help your buyer successfully integrate the data they bought into their workflow.
