Location intelligence for any industry

Whether you need to analyse your customer database, visualise sales territories and data, or authorise mileage claims, we have a location intelligence solution to match your requirements. Our main strength is our agility and experience which allows us to help companies of any size to benefit from geographical intelligence.

We can offer larger companies the GIS software they need for their in-house experts, or manage the creation and implementation of large-scale bespoke GIS solutions to national organisations. Smaller companies can benefit from simple web-based, low cost user-friendly mapping systems, whilst our consultants can provide small outsourced mapping and data intelligence jobs at a low fixed-cost.

Here are just some of the sectors in which we currently work. We appreciate that our clients are too diverse to always fit neatly into an industry bracket so, if you can’t see an example of how geodata could help your specific organisation, please get in touch.
