Software development

We specialise in writing software to deal with geographic information.

Software can:

  • Automate existing workflows - reducing spent person-hours and the potential for human error.
  • Solve new challenges by allowing what was not previously possible.

If you'd like to find out if software could help in your situation please contact us on +44 (0)1444 848012 or drop us an Emailemail.

We are one of the QGIS core contributors and much of our development work focusses on extending the functionality of QGIS to match specific client requirements. Example projects include QGIS 3D, mesh layer and MDAL, QGIS Multi-threaded rendering, improvements to the QGIS legend, refactoring labelling engine, snapping functionality, trace digitising and several other features.

We also write and maintain a number of QGIS plugins which are extended and improved from time to time as per client requests.



Web GIS is the concept of performing GIS tasks through the web browser. Its potential applications include:

  • Publishing map data online through web mapping
  • Gathering spatial information from the public (e.g. a web portal for the reporting of potholes)
  • Synchronization of the data between Web GIS, Desktop QGIS and Mobile GIS

A key benefit of web GIS is giving non-technical users access to complex GIS processes through simple and intuitive user interfaces. For example, the Mappin is service Lutra provides for easy and quick setup of web map.

Mobile GIS


GIS on mobile devices is the concept of performing GIS tasks through the Android or iOS device. Its potential applications include:

  • Offline browsing of custom maps in the field
  • Gathering spatial information, notes and pictores in the field
  • Synchronization of the data between Web GIS, Desktop QGIS and Mobile GIS

A key benefit of mobile GIS is ability to gather and display GIS data through simple and intuitive user interfaces vin offline mode in the field. For example, the Input is open-source Android and iOS application based on QGIS Quick library.

Productivity Tools

Workflows that include repetitive tasks can benefit greatly from productivity tools. Some of our publically available productivity tools include the AutoTrace plugin for QGIS. Constraint Checker is a plugin developed for Dartmoor National Park Authority in the UK that automates the searching and reporting of planning constraints such as Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSIs).
