Geographical Information Systems Consultancy

Welcome to the web site of Graeme Herbert, an independent consultant in Geographical Information Systems (GIS) with over 20 years experience in the industry. I am based in the Spanish capital of Madrid but have worked on projects in other European countries, in the Americas and in Asia. I mostly work with the GE Smallworld suite of products, and have particular experience in the telecommunications sector.

If you are interested in knowing more about my GIS experience and the services I can offer then please take a look at my GIS services page, my projects page, or download a copy of my CV from here. I can be contacted directly via this web page.

In addition to my work on major GIS projects, I also keep a close eye on the latest developments in open-source mapping, the location-based services industry and the ways in which mobile technology and social networks are making applications based on geographical location a key part of many people's lives. Visit my blog for regular posts on these issues.


FOSS4G 2014

This year was the third time I have attended FOSS4G, the international conference for open source GIS and mapping software. The first one I attended, in Denver in 2011, was  my chance to find out what was going on in open source geospatial development. Despite many years of working in the GIS field, almost everything I saw and heard about in Denver was new to me, an indication of how it's possible to work in a specialised area and yet miss so much of what is happening around you.
