In 2016 GoodLands made history as the first organization to visualize a major global religion and its people across the entire surface of the Earth. We were also the first organization to use data to visualize the global Catholic Church. Our work is born out of a calling to better understand how people relate to the world through the art and science of map making and connect this with story telling to promote global action for good, exploration, and communication.

Making Maps + History

We deliver high quality, visually stunning map products that inspire, excite, and inform people around the world.


You can have faith in the maps we make. We deeply value accessible and visually stunning communications media and have high standards for information quality and excellence in cartography.


Our maps can help guide people through space, show transportation routes and key locations and sightseeing opportunities. They can provide visual directory for communities, or reveal insights about people, real estate, environment, or markets in an area. Furthermore, maps lay the foundation for property planning that is socially, environmentally, and economically responsible.
