Democratising conversations around people, process and place. We’ve created a platform for consultations, collaborations and storytelling - around a map.

Hello, we’re Nautoguide

We love maps. We understand data. And we’re really brilliant at creating attractive, intuitive and ever-so-slightly subversive visual engines (...maps, shmaps) for exposing, exploring, exchanging - and ultimately transforming - data. In a completely transparent way and through a totally collaborative process.

Ask yourself where CAN’T we do our thing? Imagine any conversation, any consultation, and any piece of storytelling, hosted by a location-sensitive, interactive digital canvas.

So we’ve found clever ways to help people discover their family history. Or give feedback on cycle lanes, keep their streets clean, explore electoral boundary changes, and navigate historical walks.

Who we’ve worked with

Is this moving too quickly? Take a look at our (static) case studies here.

How we do what we do

It starts with your bright idea. Challenge us with the impossible - ‘maybe’ is about as negative as we get. We know some pretty clever ways to integrate data, locations and interactions, and we’re always ready to figure out some new ones.

You’ll think you’re outsourcing to us. But really, we’re putting you on our team. You get a timeshare in our hearts, our brains, and on our excellent software platform - Geovey - which is where the time and cost savings come from.

We’ll work with you to design, develop, test, deploy and support a solution to your digital mapping conundrum. From concept, to end of life.

What we’re talking about

Let's make your idea happen

Too many great ideas never happened because people didn't know where to begin. Well, contacting us is the first step in making sure yours does. We're very friendly and we're happy to help you in any way we can. Send us an email or drop in to our Slack and we can start by saying "hello".

The last words on us

We believe that all data tells stories, and it’s our job to make them brilliant. And we love challenges, thriving when we can figure out things that daunt others.

Our twin creeds are open and agile - which aren’t very compatible with silos and hierarchies. So we believe in building bridges, not walls

As a short-hand, think of us as a digital kibbutz of compulsive problem solvers with an ass-kicking organic, open technology platform, telling stories through maps.
