Geographic Mapping, Spatial Analysis & Data Portals

Mapping and sharing geographic information (GI) – ie. information about the places & ‘spaces’ of our world and our interactions with them – is our first passion, and we have over 50 years of collective experience covering all aspectsGI Consultancy (in both the public and private sectors), sourcing / capturing data,  spatial analysis using GIS (we are a registered ICO data processor) and publishing & sharing as both online map-enabled data portals and large format paper maps.

Our School Travel Health Check (STHC) spatial analysis service – which provides high quality, spatial intelligence data to local authorities, school communities and other stakeholders interested in how children travel to school, from where, and how far they travel to get there – has been combining all of these GI skills in the one service since 2005.

We are also passionate about the development of spatial data infrastructures (SDIs) at all levels to ensure that this key knowledge is accessible to all who need it – be they members of the GI Professional Community or communities defined geographically – and they have the capacity to use it once they have it.

UK Government Chief Medical Officer 2009 Annual Report

Our School Travel Health Check (STHC) Spatial Analysis Service is cited as the example of best practice for public health in the South West Region in the 2009 Annual Report of the UK Government Chief Medical Officer (see “Increasing active travel by schoolchildren” – p73).

“This innovative sustainable development initiative aims to provide robust data that will allow schools, planners and individuals to develop more sustainable school travel options.”

“Active travel to school is an important source of physical activity for young people. It could be increased further. These statistics provide a useful baseline against which to measure progress, and should be used in conjunction with a qualitative assessment of local authority and school travel policies.”

Years Of Experience

We have decades of collective professional experience of all aspects of the sourcing, creation, analysis & sharing of information to provide meaningful insight to stakeholders.

Insight, Not Technology

Though technology is vitally important, it is just a tool, a means to an end. We never lose sight of the reason why we are using it, which is to provide you with meaningful insight into your world...

Standard Office Tools

We use the same standard technology tools as you - MS Office, MapInfo, QGIS, Google Maps, MindManager, Bootstrap, browsers... It's what we do with them that makes the difference!

Friendly & Approachable

We like to work in a collaborative way with our clients and partners so that we achieve more together. You are experts at what you do. We would like to help you do it better with what we do 🙂

Pragmatic Approach

We've been employees in the public sector and large corporations ourselves, so we know what it's like from both sides. That's why we offer things like 'flexible invoicing' to fit in with your budgetary cycle.

We Hate Waste

The wasting of your time hunting for the information you need. The waste of effort in creating knowledge resources that aren't as well used as they could be by those who would benefit from them most. We're doing our best to sort that!

MindManager Official Partners

As one of MindManager's International Value Added partners we feed in to the Beta development program and can draw from a huge pool of knowledge to help you get the most from the world's best information mapping software.

We're On The Supplier List

We are on several government supplier lists, including the Scottish & UK governments, as well as local authorities. Let us know if there's anything we can do to make procurement of our products & services any easier for you.

Community Benefit Focus

Community is what binds us together as a species. It is through community that probelms are identified, solutions arrived at & delivered, and success celebrated & shared. We especially enjoy working with communities (geographic or virtual) to help them move forward with what they want to do.

ISO 3166-1 Countries of the World Knowledge Atlas Maps

Our Countries of the World – General & Geographic Knowledge Atlas builds on the visual knowledge framework of our Base Atlas through the addition of collections of knowledge link sub-branches – each with a single hyperlink to official / definitive / plain old useful General or Geographic knowledge resources – to facilitate ‘thumb friendly’ discovery of basic knowledge about each ISO3166-1 defined country of the world for business or personal desktop (or even ‘on the hoof’) research.

General resource links include the country’s page(s) for BBC News, CIA World Fact Book & World Leaders & Cabinet Members Directory, ISO Online Portal, Wikipedia Category & Main Article, Portal & Outline.

Geogrpahic resource links include online mapping services like Google Maps and Open Street Map (with a summary of all available services on GeoHack), static map libraries from the United Nations Geospatial Division, UNITAR & WikiMedia Commons Atlas of the World, and the Wikipedia Geography Sub-Category & Main Article.

See the ‘Knowledge Links’ tab for a complete description of all single link sub-branches.

ISO3166-1 Countries

Building on the ISO3166-1 Countries Of The World – Base Atlas, this map adds collections of knowledge link sub-branches – each with a single hyperlink to official / definitive / plain old useful General or Geographic knowledge resources – to facilitate ‘thumb friendly’ discovery of basic knowledge about the country for business or personal desktop research. This includes the country’s page(s) for BBC News, CIA World Fact Book & World Leaders & Cabinet Members Directory, ISO Online Portal, Wikipedia Category & Main Article, Portal & Outline, online mapping services like Google Maps and Open Street Map (with a summary of all available services on GeoHack), static map libraries from the United Nations Geospatial Division, UNITAR & WikiMedia Commons Atlas of the World, and the Wikipedia Geography Sub-Category & Main Article.

In our countries of the world atlas maps all the knowledge link sub-branch collections sit within the base framework of knowledge seed branches for each country – as officially defined by ISO-3166-1: Codes For The Representation Of Names Of Countries – arranged as sub-branches within an ‘org-tree’ base framework of seed branches of UN defined Macro Geographical (Continental) Regions And Sub-Regions. Seed branches are differentiated from other map branches by the rich range of visual knowledge elements embedded within, or attached to, them that provides a ‘base level’ of contextual knowledge & knowledge resource links about the subject (see the ‘Seed Branches’ tab for a complete description).
