Community Tools

We specialise in creating Web and Native Applications to build communities and crowdsource data from those communities

e.g. The Big Cannon Project

Interactive Maps

We have the experience and tools to rapidly create innovative and interesting web maps using Leaflet, OL and Google

e.g. Trackbash

Data Visualisation

Innovative and Interactive ways to view data. For instance, using Chart.js and regression to display GPS data as a track profile .

e.g. Trackbash

VR Data Visualisation

We are pioneering in the very new field of data visualisation and GIS in Virtual Reality. We are founders of the ViRGiS project creating a VR platform for GIS.

see the ViRGiS project

Web Apps

Web Apps using technologies such as Javascript, Angular, PWA and HTML5, and building on libraries and frameworks such as Leaflet, Chart.js, and Material Design are the ideal to rapidly and efficiently create good looking and functional applications across all platforms and without the user overhead of the "app download". We are expert at this.

Computational Archeology and GIS

We have a wealth of experience and a particular interest in GIS, AI and ML, particularly where they apply to Computational Archeology and the analysis and presentation of heritage data. For example the Big Cannon Project and Sandwich Bay Flats Project. We are also sponsors of Project Argos.

Professional Apps for Small Groups
Do you have an idea for an application that would have a small but very active group of users? But, you think that you have to choose between a very standard web page that does not do what want or an expensive custom app? ​ We want to use the latest tools to change that. We can rapidly and cheaply build multiplatform applications for you using Angular and WebApps so that you can have high functionality apps at a cost point suitable for small user groups. ​ So, if you have a group or idea for an app with a small but dedicated user group, or if you need crowd sourced data, press the button below to contact us.
