Who am I?
I’m an independent geodeveloper who designs, creates, and customises Geographic Information Systems (GIS) for the web and desktop. Most of my time is spent providing consulting and bespoke geospatial software development to clients in Ireland and Europe.
What do I Use?
My current favourite technologies are a mix of proprietary and open-source technologies. I’m a big fan of SQL Server 2008, which has spatial support. I often use MapServer for serving out data via web services. For web mapping I am currently using a mix of OpenLayers, GeoExt, and MapFish.
Why a Blog?
One of the main reasons for starting a blog was as a “work diary” – a handy place to keep track of how exactly I did something, so I can refer to it a year later when I’ve forgotten it. As a bonus, and incentive to documenting what I’ve been up to, others may find a few useful tips, or solutions to errors. Feel free to leave comments or questions on any of the posts. If you require custom spatial software development then please get in touch.
