    The Geosho Platform puts location at the heart of modern consumer technology, empowering organisations and businesses to do almost anything they want with data and information that is better understood when visualized or analysed in the context of a map or its location or its movement

    What do we do ? .puts location at the heart of programmes, empowering organisations and businesses to do almost anything they want with data and information that is better understood when visualized or analysed in the context of a map or its location or its movement. This map of Wales is formed purely from UK census return locations. There is no underlying map.

    Allowing for anonymised user Analytics, Dynamic content management, offline mapping,

    One platform that The ability to connect place and date IS critical to SME success In AN INCReasingly mobile World. ORGANISATIONS do not want to involve themselves in the complexities of Location They need Apps or services that works with their existing data. They want to do it via their smartphones, their tablets or browsers.This is a wall on the a 487 outside Aberystwyth in Mid-Wales https://www.google.co.uk/maps/@52.3174799,-4.1325873,3a,75y,204h,76.4t/data=!3m4!1e1!3m2!1sbzFOLX2PHRWFP-b_arQBxw!2e0Sixty miles away from Trywern and focus of our presentation.This is a 1948 new heritage edition ordnance survey map of Cwm Celyn which contained the community of Capel Celyn,This is a Geosho map of Cwm Celyn now. Since 1965 it has contained 70000 megalitres of water.It replaced this monoglot welsh speaking community of around 70 people. Despite 8 years of intense protest from the community and prominent figures in WalesThe colonial status of Wales highlighted by the Tryweryn situation was one of several historic factors instrumental in the creation of the Welsh Office in 1964 and eventually devolution in 1997Tryweryn was a key factor in the rise of Welsh Paramilitary separatist movement sponsored and supported by the Irish republican paramilitaries. This is a British Army patrol in Carmarthenshire following paramilitary activityTryweryn remains a significant and emotive turning point in Wales. Particularly with regard to the Welsh Language. Despite the deep scars left in the folk memory the beauty of the place cannot be denied.Geosho specialise in this area and are creating a dynamic trail that allows visitors to walk around the lake. An app that will reveal what once lay beneath Llyn Celyn.Geoshos development team is based in North West Wales. We speak Welsh as a matter of course during our working day. We speak other languages too! We feel privileged to be a part of this and as a result understand that in order to interpret the place and its history effectively, translation from one language to the other was / is not an effective method of telling this story. To this end we are working with two authors who will create content for the trail in Welsh and English separately. We believe that this approach to interpretation, particularly a story so intriniscally linked with language and culture and politics.Thank you for giving our company this opportunity. This presentation is going to cover two things.. Our view on collaboration and us, who we are and what we do.. Nothing technical, I promiseFinally I will try my best to describe how we collaborate digitally, how we work with others, who we work with and why and how we sell and market to others .
