We are skilled practitioners combining strong open data knowledge with a proven track-record of delivery, and can train people to use data better, using a variety of tools and techniques.


Open data. Open knowledge. Open design. If you want to benefit from open, we can help – either by making use of all the open stuff that’s out there – or helping you be more open in your own organisation.


If you want to show your data off, or express it in ways that other people can understand – we can do that. Using cutting-edge software and techniques, we will bring your data to life.


We can build tools to help get more out of data. Using a variety of resources – d3.js, leaflet.js, r, shiny, and more – we can help you understand and communicate data better, and turn it into information you can use.


If you feel like you aren’t getting the most out of the data you generate and collect, we can help. Starting with a specific problem, we can take your data and combine it with other data sources to better understand that problem.


If you want to increase the visibility of your data, we can help you develop engagement plans to get it seen and used by more people.
