Spatialised is a consultancy operated by Dr Adam Steer. The philosophy behind the business is clearly articulated as: 

Move purposefully, and fix things

Alyssa Wright, FOSS4G SotM Oceania 2018

Spatialised draws on career experience across research, planning, logistics, training and technical ‘thing building’ – weaving deep technology and complex science into practical applications and compelling user stories; understanding and navigating complexity; focussing on ethical and pragmatic innovation. This is reflected in the services we offer.

With strong global connections in geospatial and ethical data communities, and proven community-building experience, Spatialised is able to build collaborative, distributed teams to tackle projects at any scale.

Adam’s CV can be found here; his research profile is on ResearchGate. Examples of code and training materials are out in public on github and gitlab. You can also follow Spatialised on Twitter; or read Adam’s work on personal evolution, bikes and politics.

Much of what you read here is in the exploratory / unfunded projects space – things done because they’re potentially helpful rather than because a client has paid for them. All the massive point cloud work, terrain visualisation in QGIS, and drone mapping work falls into this space unless it specifically mentions a funding source. If you find them useful, please support the creation of more! You can donate/set up a recurring subscription via Stripe:
