Spatialised is a geospatial strategy, data science and field research / data collection business, specialising in open source geospatial tools, open data and data standards. Spatialised comes from ‘full stack earth systems research’ – meaning the whole circle from strategy and design to implementing projects to analysing the results and presenting them visually, orally and in writing. Then feeding the boots on ground efforts back into strategy.

Spatialised takes a deep generalist approach, with a bias toward mountain systems and cryospheres. Research-grade rigour is applied to everything we do, which backs on to research-grade caution about our capabilities. With an earth systems research background we understand that the natural world is going to overflow any boxes we try to build it into; and data are messy. Growing better insights and maintainable systems is our mantra.

Spatialised content remains ad free, and only tracks you for statistics purposes unless you choose to log in to anything. You won’t be asked to subscribe. You can if you want to, or you can visit planet.osgeo – which federates new posts from us, and many other sources. That’s possibly your best way to keep track of news from Spatialised and around the open geospatial world.
