Our Story

Orbica was established in 2017 to offer innovative geospatial solutions to a wide range of industries. Unique thinking and agile business practises allow us to tailor bespoke solutions for our clients.

There are some people who just can’t think inside the quadrilateral.

Orbica founder and CEO Kurt Janssen is one of them. He was convinced there were better ways to do things in the geospatial industry, exciting technology frontiers to be explored and a myriad of location data-inspired solutions just waiting to be discovered. That’s how Orbica came about in February 2017.

Orbicans joined the team one-by-one and moved from start-up hub BizDojo to a purposed-designed HQ in Christchurch’s Innovation Precinct in December 2017. Orbica grew to a staff of 13 in its first year, has developed an enviable client base and launched Orbica Europe in February 2018.

Orbica is pioneering research and development in Geospatial Artificial Intelligence (GeoAI), developing unique data visualisation solutions and enabling organisations to gain near real-time visibility by harnessing the power of location data. We love what we do, and we think you will too.

Let’s talk.
