Micello Blog: Indoor Cartography
Stay in touch with Micello by following our blog as we cover a wide range of cartography and company topics.
We are so excited to introduce you to our new space and the new faces at Micello's new office in Ahmedabad, India. Recently, our team of map makers transitioned to a much larger, “state of the art” working space, and welcomed new team members. Micello is dedicated to expanding our map coverage worldwide, and that means more space and more people!
The construction of the space started with a blank canvas. Once walls were torn down and we added a little paint, the space was furnished with all of the essential map making needs and viola, Micello's Ahmedabad (Abad) office is open for business. This new space features floor to ceiling windows, a friendly open work environment (and of course, air conditioning).
Micello's Ahmedabad office is where the magic happens. Commonly referred to as our "map factory", the Ahmedabad office is home to over 40 Micello employees consisting of Map Designers, Team Leaders, Administrative Professionals, Engineers, and we are growing quickly! Let’s meet some of the new faces!

Back to school has never been so exciting! Last week, Micello CEO Ankit Agarwal, had the opportunity to speak at Stanford. Micello was invited by Professor Tom Kosnik to hold a lecture and discussion for two sessions of the E145 class.
Class started with a music video to get everyone in the groove... shouldn't all classes begin this way?
A few weeks prior to this discussion, the students were given a case study featuring all things Micello. The class was divided into teams of mock companies that worked together to form their start-up. Each group worked together, with the Micello case study to determine what choices they would make given the same scenerio Ankit faced while building his start-up Micello, from day one. The outcome was phenomenal! Everyone was on the edge of their seat waiting to find out if they had made the same decisions as Ankit.
