We deliver Artificial Intelligence (AI) based solutions to solve real world problems.

Our team have considerable experience in the spatial and data science fields. We have worked on projects all over the world - from measuring and mapping Antarctic ice sheet thickness, remapping international borders, building postal address systems and developing some amazing machine learning technologies to capture a host of features from satellite and aerial imagery.

We are the AI and advanced analytics centre of excellence for Lynker – an innovative science and technology organisation with world leading expertise in water resources, climate change adaptation, marine and coastal sciences.  We collaborate extensively and can bring in their considerable expertise on advanced analytics projects when required.


We aim to bring the best of our experience and skills together to develop and produce powerful spatial data science solutions that enable our customers to better understand the performance, resilience and the environmental impact of their most important assets.

Our Mission

“To unlock deeper and more meaningful insights into the relationships between the environment and our organisations.”
