Will has roamed mountainous places for many years, that’s probably why he is obsessive about mapping. He has worked with geospatial data in academia, local government, natural resources and now he is building geoweb technology for the tech sector. Will moved from Scotland to Northern British Columbia in 2005 in search of adventure and the big wilderness, he found both. In addition to the landscape and skiing deep powder he discovered an interest in open source web technology. This interest has led him to present at various conferences, build some fun technology and ultimately create sparkgeo. Will has a Bachelor of Engineering and a Master of Science in Environmental Remote Sensing, both from Aberdeen University (Scotland). Sparkgeo is now 2 years old and we have worked with life360, mapmyfitness as well as various lesser known web applications.
Presently his number one interest is in placespeak.com, where Will is the "Chief Geographic Officer", CGeO. PlaceSpeak is an online public consultation platform, bringing democracy to a computer near you!
