About us

We work with researchers and organisations to help them use smartphone technology to leverage the power of citizen science. Working closely with you, we evaluate how crowd-sourcing with GPS phone technology can most effectively help you to gather useful data; then we build the custom software to do it. By making use of re-usable components, we keep the costs down.

We are a small, professional team which consists of developers, designers, a usability expert and a project manager (who is also a rogue ecologist).

The apps we create and the service we provide are consistently highly rated by customers and clients.
