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.

Alison Dray
Alison Dray:
Highways Asset Manager @ Wokingham Borough Council
Peter prepared a web-enabled consultation for Traffic Regulation Orders using mapping which delivered an easy consultation process and a better service for our customers. Working with Peter was an ideal professional experience. He is an excellent listener, who understood our business needs and offered solutions that enhanced our service. He delivered on time and budget whilst adding value along the way with his collaborative and technically sound approach. 3rd May 2017.
Rebecca Bird
Rebecca Bird:
Planner @ Wokingham Borough Council
Pete created four Story Maps for Wokingham Borough Council which have fundamentally changed the way residents, developers, council officers, borough councilors, and town and parish councils access information about Wokingham's four strategic development sites. Pete went above and beyond what was originally agreed, as our data needed quite a bit more work than we first thought. He helped us design the maps in such a way that they allow viewers with little prior knowledge to easily understand what is happening on each of the development sites, while also providing enough detailed information to satisfy the more informed viewers. Pete was efficient and professional throughout the project and was frankly great to work with! 12th April 2017.
Brian Hughes
Brian Hughes:
Consultant @ NCC Group
I recently worked in collaboration with Peter to review the viability of corporate mapping options for a client and found Peter to be a highly professional and pragmatic consultant. Peter’s in-depth, practical experience and knowledge of the GIS and digital mapping ‘world’ enabled us to effectively derive a set options that were business-focused, strategic and robust. The client was able to objectively select their preferred option from those presented and are now, with Peter’s support, in the process of implementing the selected option. I would not hesitate to recommend Peter for any work that focused on GIS and digital mapping for business. 11th March 2017.
Fiona Penny
Fiona Penny:
Owner & Director @ Fiona Penny Bespoke Home Finders
Peter is extremely professional and listened carefully to our feedback. He has some innovative ideas and is able to relate these ideas to different business models. The Cranbrook School Catchment Area app which he developed for us is a fantastic tool which is proving to be very well received and it helps to differentiate us. I would not hesitate in recommending Peter to anyone else who requires his expert digital mapping input. 31st January 2017.
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. 24th August 2016.
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. 18th July 2016.
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. 6th July 2016.
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. 6th July 2016.
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. 22nd June 2016.
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. 20th June 2016.
Debbie Barry
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.

Val Green
Val Green:
Head of Organisational Development @ Tunbridge Wells Borough Council
Peter is an inspirational manager who has a rare combination of excellent technical skills and real innovation. He is always positive and focuses on solutions rather than problems. He was an absolute pleasure to work with. 1st June 2016.
Craig Hayes
Craig Hayes:
Customer Success Manager @ Esri UK
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. 31st May 2016.
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. 24th May 2016.
