en:mapping is a professional and experienced GIS consultancy offering a comprehensive range of GIS and data services for the environmental sector and other industries.
We specialise in providing GIS capabilities for organisations without an in-house team, or for organisations which require additional GIS expertise - for example, in theoretical modelling or data capture.
The company is operated by Mark Parnell who established en:mapping in 2007 to provide services to the UK ecology sector, with the aim of making GIS integral to ecology projects while respecting budget and time constraints.
We pride ourselves on being flexible and reactive, and can work remotely or from a client’s office.
