Atkins is one of the UK’s largest independent providers of geospatial services. We design and develop GI applications and software solutions to help our clients to make the most of their spatial data, and we enable our clients to realise the benefits of GIS through the provision of advice, support, management, and maintenance services.

Our Geospatial services encompass the entire data lifecycle. We capture data from satellite imagery and aerial photography, digitise information from existing maps and plans, and collect data in the field. We manage the data, conduct data processing and informed analysis, and map or model the data to create two-dimensional and three-dimensional visualisations.

Our accomplishments have been recognised by awards from the Association for Geographic Information, and by the Business Achievement IT Award, presented by the Environmental Business Journal in 2005.
