We are based at The University of Manchester and we have been developing web-based decision support systems over the past 20 years.
The team is led by Richard Kingston's research into using GIS (Geographical Information Systems) as a tool to support decision making, the main objective of what we do is to provide your stakeholders with access to information and data in the form of on-line maps and visualisations. This then supports you in making better informed decisions about your location-based problems.
For further information please contact Richard Kingston either by e-mail or if you are trying to physically find where we are this Google Map may help. For more traditional methods you can use:
