Is there a list about ESRI contributions/mentions/credits/softwares in movies? Not only CityEngine, but ESRI in generic.

I’ve made a fast IMDb search and I found Designated Survivor, Sea of Hope, Conviction; but there are no hits for the well-knowns like Zootopia and Blade Runner.

(I've no better idea where to post this question. Feel free to move it 🙂

Hi Akos,

I'm not aware of any definitive list, but I wanted to add one more TV show credit, the CBS show The District.

Hope this helps,
