Our story

How we grew into what we are today


Co-founders Andrew Beveridge and Ahmed Lacevic met at Queens College, CUNY in 1999. They collaborated on a data visualization project funded by the National Science Foundation and the New York Times with a goal of developing a simple online interface that gives users access to demographic data using visual mapping tools. From these beginnings in a research lab at Queens College, we grew into a diverse team of engineers, designers and data scientists spread across two continents. From our offices in Sarajevo and New York City, we serve customers in education, media, business, government and more. Millions of people around the world have used our products to explore data visually.
