With the second highest total GDP in China, Jiangsu Province has been at the forefront of developing digital economy in China. Based on the industrial output value and employment data from 2005 to 2019 for six digital economy sectors, the paper uses the location entropy index to measure the industrial agglomeration level, and makes a visual analysis with ArcGIS software. The results are as follows: (1) from the perspective of static distribution, the overall digital economy of Jiangsu Province has not achieved the scale agglomeration effect. (2) From the perspective of dynamic evolution, based on their respective advantages, cities vigorously develop their own competitive industries. Recommendations include the promotion of staggered layout planning of digital economic sectors, cultivation of industry leaders, and effective use of data industrial parks.
