We've Mapped The World's 500 Largest Corporations

Fortune Magazine is out with the Global 500 today, breaking down the top international companies by revenue (an expansion from its namesake domestic list).

While the U.S. continues to dominate the ranking, China continued to gain share. In the past year it added 12 companies to Fortune’s list; to qualify in 2012 a firm had to report top line results of at least $22 billion last year.  

European based companies gave up 11 spots this year, while China added 12. Total revenue at the 500 gained 13.2 per cent from 2010, to $29.5 trillion, while profits hit $1.6 trillion.

Below, a look at the Global 500 based on a country’s home base.
