Hi, I'm Ben.

I provide open solutions to spatial and data problems.

Why open?

I believe in the democratization of knowledge and technology.
I believe that people who want to work with or make sense of data and spatial information should be able to do so.
With open technologies, we can create solutions that are:


Different people have different problems that require different solutions. There is no one-size fits all.

Bespoke solutions are tailor-fit to your needs because, like suits and dresses, the best solutions rarely come from off-the shelf.


Lower your immediate and future costs by saving on license fees and paying only for what you need, when you need it.

No more overpaying for software -- don't buy the entire toolshed when all you need are three or four tools.


Lack of single-vendor lock-in and license liabilities.

Perfect for small organizations (e.g. NGOs, CSOs, newsrooms), local governments, communities, and people in general who are looking for budget-friendly ways to leverage the power of data and spatial information.

Curious about how we can collaborate or still need more convincing?
