Manifold World Headquarters?

This blog started because of nagging questions about Manifold the company, not manifold the GIS software. Who is Manifold? Where are they really located? How many many people (other than Dimitri Rotow) work there? Basically, what's their story? They make a lot of noise on the internet, but who are they really? If I'm going to recommend to a client that they adopt Manifold as their GIS platform, the client is going to want to know a lot of this stuff (and more).

I've taken GIS training in Huntsville, AL at Intergraph World Headquarters (which reminds me of a large military base), and also at ESRI World Headquarters in Redlands, CA (nice facility in a crappy part of CA). Imagine my surprise when a former coworker emailed me this photo he snapped while driving through Carson City, NV, of "Manifold World Headquarters".

My condolences at having to go to Huntsville. :-)

I thought Manifold was a Canadian company?

Looks to be the place...

Thanks to Microsoft's live search, Jeffs Image, and my innate imagery intelligence abilities, I have been able to ascertain the location of the Manifold HQ!

As you can see from the reflection in Jeffs image you can see a number of signs. Using my advanced triangulation calculation I can calculate the exact location of said Manifold HQ.

Very interesting that if you go their web site and look at the "About" page (http://www.manifold.net/about/about_mfdnet.html) you will see an item for "Personal Visits" that states...

Personal Visits: For security reasons, we do not allow customer or vendor visits.

Wonder why...

Dave said...

But the published address is
Manifold Net Ltd.
1945 North Carson Street
Suite 700
Carson City, NV 89701
The sign on the door says 1805, so it looks like you're full of it.

can you take a walk down the street and photograph 1945? Also, maybe you want to take a picture of the people going in-and-out of the building.

You can pick up a neat "spy-kit" at Toys R Us too. I'd love to see you in the fake mustache and glasses :-)

Looks like Dimitri has responded to your blog:

http://69.17.46.171/Site/Thread.aspx?id=33851&ti=633051510595100000

funny though, he does not deny that you got the right picture :-)

Anonymous said...

More like he says you are a moron if you think mailing address = company HQ. Could be right.

Anonymous said...

well, looks like you've added nothing else to this posting, like more pictures. So, you are nothing more than a cheap blog-whore who spreads misinformation.

But we should expect that - you used Intergraph for years. An overpriced product with virtually not real spatial capabilities.

Glad to see you left the GIS field. It is doing just great without you!

c'mon shitbag. Respond. Or, are you one of those a-holes who throws a hand grenade into a room and runs away.

Manifold is God. You have no idea. Come closer to the light... Don't deny what your heart and mind tell you. Be one with the best.

I can't remember a software product that I despise as much.

Insane activation and upgrade process that never stops combined with snide comments from nearly-non-existent tech support to cause MY team to uninstall.

AAAAHHHHhhhhhh... to never have contact with that little Hitler again... priceless!

Actually the address seems to add up with the one Manifold displays on their site...

It's a great product at a fraction the cost. Just too bad it's cloaked in secrecy. It's hard to budget for new releases when they're not structured.
