The Interpret team is made up of a diverse range of people, from varying backgrounds but with complementary skillsets.
Amongst them are people relatively fresh to the profession, with bold, exciting ideas, working alongside industry leaders with unparalleled knowledge who hold prominent positions in the wider GIS community.
Our team have worked all over the country, having been employed by Government departments, educational organisations and large commercial enterprises.
And our team have worked around the globe, with their influence felt as far afield as the US defense forces, and at the ‘home’ of GIS, at ESRI Headquarters in California.
As varied as their backgrounds are they share certain things in common, first and foremost is the passion for what they do. They thrive on the challenges their clients present them with, and gain huge satisfaction from generating clear, tangible results for complex problems.
Families play a huge part in the lives of the Interpret team outside the office, while a common theme is a desire to keep fit and active, with their love of Geography evident in the way they embrace the ‘great outdoors’ and the stunning natural environment that surrounds us.
