About web-gis.co.uk

This site provides some news about GIS (Geographical Information Systems), web mapping and all things geospatial. I’m aiming to bring you information from a variety of sources and events around cartography, GIS, GPS, web mapping, geospatial technologies and related fields. Please contact me if you have any items of interesting news you want to share. 50% of the advertising revenue from this site is donated to MapAction – so please click the sponsored links!

In my day job I work for Aon Benfield in the Impact Forecasting team., providing my GIS expertise and know-how to the development of catastophe models for the reinsurance industry. Previously I worked for Halcrow Group Limited, a large global engineering consultancy, and prior to that for IETG and 40SEVEN. Outside of work, I volunteer for MapAction, the disaster mapping charity and have attended disasters in Bolivia and Jamaica, and capacity-building missions in Lesotho and Niger. For more information about me you can view my linkedin profile. You can also follow me on twitter.

And finally, this blog site and the comments made on it do not reflect the views of my employers.

Thanks for visiting the site!
