Peter successfully completed a GIS review for the London Borough of Hillingdon and produced a well thought out and comprehensive report offering a number of solutions designed to enhance their service. He was hand-picked for the assignment because of his in-depth knowledge and experience of GIS and digital mapping, particularly in the public sector. He is a true professional and delivered the project ahead of time and I would not hesitate to recommend Peter for any GIS and digital mapping projects for business and for our public sector clients.

I worked in collaboration with Peter to review the viability of corporate mapping options for a client and found Peter to be a highly professional and pragmatic consultant. Peter’s in-depth, practical experience and knowledge of the GIS and digital mapping ‘world’ enabled us to effectively derive a set of options that were business-focused, strategic and robust. The client was able to objectively select their preferred option from those presented and are now, with Peter’s support, in the process of implementing the selected option. I would not hesitate to recommend Peter for any work that focused on GIS and digital mapping for business.

Peter is extremely professional and listened carefully to our feedback. He has some innovative ideas and is able to relate these ideas to different business models. The Cranbrook School Catchment Area app which he developed for us is a fantastic tool which is proving to be very well received and it helps to differentiate us. I would not hesitate in recommending Peter to anyone else who requires his expert digital mapping input.
