Continuing with our series of Company Connecting infographics, our infographic this week covers a number of related areas i.e. IT companies working in Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality, 3D, Animation, GIS, 3D Visualisation and Graphics. Out of our database of 3,400+ companies there are 226 working in these specialist areas.
68% of the companies have less than 20 employees so they are slightly smaller than the ‘average’ size of companies we have on our database. Cambridge comes top with 43 companies, followed by Edinburgh & Glasgow with 31 and 27 respectively. Aberdeen has 14 companies and Dundee 11 – reflecting the use of these technologies in oil & Gas for Aberdeen, and the Games industry in Dundee.
The top sectors for these technologies are: games, oil & gas, education, architecture and IT itself.
In skills that these companies have, Software Development once again comes top, followed by Graphics Design, 3d Modelling, 3D Animation and Web Design.
