The difference between a Marketplace, a reseller, and Ellipsis Drive
In the quickly evolving world of Geospatial technology, it can be easy to lose track of all the different businesses and business models within the space. The matrix below is here to help you understand the key differences between spatial data marketplaces, resellers, 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 to support their business model. Ellipsis Drive on the other hand connects buyers and sellers directly without taking a share of the transactions (our business model is storage based). Furthermore, our platform is designed to help all of the users successfully integrate the data they bought into their workflow.
Learning more about these opportunities is important for anyone involved with the sharing of spatial data. We are always here to help!
