Based in Christchurch, our talented team have been encouraged by the success of an award-winning asbestos management tool. We initially developed a contaminated land software called Evalu8 that allowed users to compare analytical results to 6000 guidelines from around the world. We built a mapping function into Evalu8 that proved popular with a wide variety of users because it allowed people to deliver high-quality exports without putting pressure on their GIS teams. We focused on this aspect and built on it creating datanest a platform that allows any user to collect, manage, map and deliver data to a high level
