Where: The Forgotten 'W'

Geography can provide a where to the who, what, why and when.
Location, location, location: everything happens somewhere!
Organisations invest significant amounts of money on data, much of which is geospatial data, and to increase the value of this investment requires a Strategy and a System to support it.
Location Strategy
Location Strategy
Data-driven organisations understand information, and this understanding lives in the data. This is data you already have in your business systems (e.g. CRMs), your head, spreadsheets, documents, images, and more. All of this data has one thing in common – location.
A Location Strategy is required to manage this data and derive understanding.
Business value: gather, visualise and analyse data, bringing the purpose of GIS - to deliver actionable information - into the forefront.
Geographical Information System
Managing data in a structured, organised manner is what a GIS does well. Managing your location data enables you to leverage the value of this data. This is done by insuring your teams and their clients have the most accurate and timely data in their hands.
GIS enables organisations gain deeper insight into key geospatial business data (Land, People and Property) using location analytics.
GIS mapping software helps you understand and visualize data to make decisions based on the best information and analysis.
MAPMAN specialises in Esri's ArcGIS Platform - the world's leading provider of GIS - via the Esri Startup Program.

William Benson
William Benson:
Chief Executive @ Tunbridge Wells Borough Council
Pete led our GIS services at Tunbridge Wells Borough Council and more widely across a number of authorities in Kent. A strategic thinker, Pete was passionate about sharing and exploiting data for the benefit of citizens and public service providers alike and about harnessing the power of data to transform services.
Paul Taylor
Paul Taylor:
Director @ Mid Kent Services
Peter’s strategic insight and knowledge of GIS is first class. I have worked with him over a number of years directly and in partnerships across Kent and he has always impressed me with the way he helps and supports others. He has strong values and high standards and I thoroughly enjoyed working with him.
Amara McKay
Amara McKay:
Group Finance Coordinator @ Town & Country Housing Group
When Town & Country Housing Group were looking to purchase a Geographical Information System, Peter played an integral part in helping select the most appropriate system for the Group's requirements. His patience seems to know no boundaries as I sent endless queries. Without the support from Peter, TCHG would still be in the investigation stages instead of on the verge of making a procurement. Thank you Peter.
Neil Rennie
Neil Rennie:
Strategic Sales Manager @ Getmapping
I have dealt with Pete for many years, initially with Tunbridge Wells Borough Council and latterly through Kent County Council. Pete was always forward thinking and a great champion in engaging & motivating other Districts to take part in Consortium purchases, which is no mean feat. I can honestly say that they probably wouldn’t have happened without him. He was always very personable and amiable to deal with and would be a great asset to anyone.
Dr. Ed Wallington
Dr. Ed Wallington:
Health & Social Care Lead @ Esri UK
I have worked with Pete for a number of years in the health & social care sector relating to geographic information and systems. Pete is a pleasure to work with and a big asset to Kent CC. Pete knows GIS and how the tools can be applied to leverage benefits and generate greater insights for informed decision making. Pete always knows who to talk to and his communication style is impeccable. A very valued colleague to work with.
Ian Hirst
Ian Hirst:
Head of Digital Services & Transformation @ Tunbridge Wells Borough Council
Peter established himself as an innovative pioneer in the use of GIS across the organisation, recognising its potential to transform business processes and improve productivity and efficiency. Peter has given this organisation a class leading platform upon which to continue our transformational work. His drive to develop partnerships in GIS led to the creation of KentGIS and opened up further opportunities to share best practice and innovation. I recommend Peter as a positive force for change, capable of taking on the biggest challenges and delivering on objectives.
Val Green
Val Green:
Head of Organisational Development @ Tunbridge Wells Borough Council

I have worked with Peter for a number of years developing GIS value propositions for Kent. His enthusiasm for GIS, ability to communicate business value and extensive experience in the application of GIS is second to none.
Debbie Barry

ICT Business Development Manager @ Kent County Council
Pete's genuine passion for creating transformational business solutions through the use of GIS makes him a persuasive influencer within the organisation. Pete combines subject-matter expertise with personal charm. He is a great communicator and able to share his vision so that senior stakeholders can see how GIS can provide business value.
Richmond Crowhurst
Richmond Crowhurst:
Senior Account Manager @ Landmark Solutions
Pete is one of the most engaging, motivated and switched on individuals I’ve ever come across during my many years working with local and central government. With a wide ranging knowledge of GI, web and networks, he was able to assist us – at Landmark – in building a Web Mapping Service that not only fitted the needs of Kent County Council, their districts and schools but one that we could apply across the whole sector. I'd be delighted to work with Pete again and hope to do so in the near future.
