Experienced in smarter data and solution development

All data gets difficult with volume, but geospatial data is amongst the most complex.

How do you understand the state of your dispersed and dynamic, but mission-critical, location data? And, how can you actively manage this information for the greatest return on investment? In short, how do you make your data smarter?

Our consultants – recognised as leading professionals across the industry – specialise in strategies for data management and the deployment of GIS solutions.

1Spatial consultants – making your data smarter

We build long-term relationships with our clients, helping them to:

  • find new applications for data investments
  • meet emerging needs with existing data
  • create a data strategy that supports business objectives
  • integrate existing data into new systems or processes
  • connect siloed data repositories to create insights

Our consulting team covers two types of tasks:

  • Data
  • Deployment


We specialise in solving data problems, making your data smarter and freeing you to concentrate on the important task of running your business. Applying agile working principles, we work with key stakeholders in your organisation to understand your data and link it to your underlying business needs.

We combine innovative data review techniques, specialist tools and sprint methodology to assess data quality, improve understanding and model desired outcomes. With smarter, more agile data your business can make better decisions, faster.

How we do it

To gain an initial understanding of your data, its structure and the scale of work required we start with a data discovery workshop.

Data discovery allows us to then follow three repeatable steps:

  1. Data improvement requirements workshop
  2. Design Sprint
  3. Retrospective

Workshops, which normally take place on your premises, bring together key stakeholders in your business. These sessions define packages of work or tasks, prioritise them and create a backlog of work.

Backlog tasks are then assigned to a Design Sprint each of which normally lasts for one or two weeks.

During each sprint, we work through the assigned tasks, test outcomes and make measurable improvements.

When we have made the required changes and tested the results, we present these back to stakeholders in a Retrospective. Through the Retrospective, we learn from our experiences and agree actions to make sure we continuously improve for the next iteration.

At this stage, we also start to prioritise the work for the next Workshop which, including feedback from stakeholders, forms the basis of the next sprint.

Each sprint usually results in a further improvement in output data quality.

The entire process is a collaborative effort between experts in your team and ours.

We follow methodologies for agile data consultancy which have evolved through our experiences of many similar, data-driven projects. These enable collaboration and provide feedback as quickly as possible while eliminating wasted time.

We have experience at helping our clients define and drive their Data Strategy. We help you define data quality goals, then audit and assess current quality against those goals. Using our skills, experience and data-management tools, we can develop unique solutions for unique situations.
