In every sector, organisations are using location data to make better decisions – improving services, maximizing efficiency and even saving lives. 1Spatial’s suite of solutions help our customers manage their complex geospatial data. We are a rapidly growing global business with offices in Cambridge (UK), France, Australia, USA, Ireland, Belgium and Tunisia.
1Spatial’s product platform development team is responsible for developing its core LMDM software components and APIs that are deployed on-premise and on the cloud. These allow customers to bring the power of our patented no-code rules engine to their geospatial data, delivering automated data validation, cleaning, integration and transformation.
These products integrate with many open source or commercial technologies, both as data sources such as Google Big Query, Postgres databases or Esri ArcGIS and also as platforms or frameworks such as open source Wildfly, Oracle Weblogic application server or many other libraries and frameworks.
The applications are primarily built using Java on top of a C and C++ core using popular UI frameworks like React (and previously Angular) for the user interface to our no-code rules engine.
