Affiliate and Reseller Programs for GIS,
Geo-Spatial and Location-Based Content Websites
by GeoCommunity Staff
Reseller and Affiliate programs are a great way to add content to any website.
Many commercial product and service providers will pay you a commision for any leads that you
directly refer to them from your website. For example, if you provide a link on your website that
results in a purchase made at The GeoCommunity store, we'll pay you a commission, provided you are
enrolled in our affiliate program. Other partner programs serve to provide you with free content.
You don't earn a commission but you get quality content on your website and it's all managed by someone else.
Our research has turned up a number of partner or affiliate providers that may be of interest to you. If your company
provides a web-based partnering program and you want to get listed here, please send details to
