The age of Google mapping has come to 3D industry with CGStudioMap.com, an at-a-glance record of the world’s CG hotspots. The site currently displays the location of 1,045 VFX, animation and game studios, with thumbnail profiles for each one.
From our quick, and entirely unscientific, straw poll, the records look pretty comprehensive for English-speaking industry centres like Los Angeles and London, but become more hit-and-miss in mainland Europe and Asia.
However, with the site offering the facility to add your own studio’s details, we suspect it can’t be long before someone fills in the blanks. Bonus points to whoever uploads the first record for a Russian studio.
Updated 6 November 2015: The site, now officially named cg Studio Map, has been revamped and gone through a change of URL. We’ve updated the link below.
