Hi, I'm Ben.

I provide open spatial and data solutions for everyone.

Why open?

I believe in the democratization of knowledge and technology.
I believe in taking down barriers and gatekeepers.
I believe that everyone should be able to work with or make sense of data and spatial information.
With open technologies, we can create solutions that are:

Best-fit

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.

Cost-effective

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.

Sustainable

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?
