1Spatial technology provides the foundations for spatial data management and processing solutions for organisations around the world.

Meet the Partner

1Spatial are pioneers in Location Master Data Management (LMDM), helping organisations develop strong data foundations that enable critical decision-making for a safer, smarter and more sustainable world. Operating at the intersection of two fast-growing global markets, GIS (geospatial information systems) and MDM (master data management), their patented technology powers some of the largest and most complex data sets in the world, such as the US Census Bureau and Ordnance Survey GB.

Demand for current and authoritative geospatial data has never been greater, often driven by sustainability and Net Zero goals. In every sector, organisations are using location data to make better decisions - improving profits, saving time and saving lives. Over the past 30 years, 1Spatial has helped more than one thousand organisations improve the governance and quality of their data.

How 1Spatial are different

Although geospatial data can be handled by traditional GIS software or some database tools, there are key exceptions – which is where 1Spatial’s technology sets us apart from traditional MDM providers, and critically, helping save customers time and money:

  • No need for centralisation: Traditional software providers can typically only handle data that has already been centralised into one environment. 1Spatial tools can check and cross-reference the data from different sources and without needing them to be pre-loaded into a central system.

  • No-code rules development - Other systems don't provide no-code rules development and often require queries or code to be written by specialist developers.

  • Scale and complexity of data - Other systems can struggle with the performance of large amounts of complex cross-referencing needed between the data records. 1Spatial manages some of the largest and most complex geospatial databases in the world, such as Ordnance Survey and the US Census Bureau.

  • Cloud-based data upload portal - Other systems don’t provide an out-of-the box, secure, multi-tenancy data upload portal as a way to aggregate data and automatically apply rules.

Who they work with

1Spatial partners with major technology consultancies and GIS providers such as ESRI, bringing together their people, innovative solutions, industry knowledge and experience to deliver world class solutions.

1Spatial plc is AIM-listed, headquartered in Cambridge, UK, with operations in the UK, Ireland, USA, France, Belgium, Tunisia, and Australia.

How they can help you

The core of 1Spatial’s innovative rules-based software tools is 1Integrate. Sitting at the heart of an organisation’s data stores, 1Integrate performs routine data validation, error fix up and new data inference. 1Integate can be augmented by a unique self-service data quality portal, 1Data Gateway, that provides real time quality, compliance and performance metrics giving customers and also their suppliers the ability to undertake data health checks and audits.

For larger data-rich organisations such as national mapping agencies, 1Integrate is deployed with an end-to-end data workflow called 1Spatial Management Suite (1SMS). This consists of a number of software products that can either be deployed independently or together providing a highly efficient and effective solution to consistently plan, maintain and publish data, whilst also automating production workflows. 1SMS enables organisations to:

  • Harness the rich intelligence of Ordnance Survey data.
  • Infer new data from multiple sources to improve the quality and completeness of data.
  • Rapidly respond to real-world change ensuring data is always current, accurate and trusted.
  • Increase productivity and reduce operational costs by adopting automated data management and quality assurance workflows

1Spatial delivers solutions that focus on creating consistently high-quality foundation geospatial data and persistently ensuring maximum levels of data trust, integrity and governance across its data estates

  • Environment
  • Public Safety
  • Defence and National Security
