Story
Introduction

Peter is widely seen as an industry leader in the rapidly growing field of geospatial and location technologies. He is currently Founder and VP of Geospatial Technology at Ubisense. Previously he has served as CTO at two of the industry's leading companies as well as a cutting edge startup:

  • CTO of Intergraph, the second largest geospatial software company with revenues of ~$600m (2005-2007)
  • Co-founder and CTO of Ten Sails, now Ubisense, an industry leading startup in precision location tracking systems using ultrawideband (UWB) technology (2002-2005)
  • VP of technology at Smallworld (now part of GE Energy), which grew from startup to global market leader in GIS for utilities and communications during the 1990s (1992-2002)

He has been a member of the GeoWorld magazine Editorial Advisory Board since 1996, has published many articles and spoken at many conferences around the world, and has received a record nine speaker awards from GITA (the Geospatial Information and Technology Association), for presentations at their North American and Australian conferences. He has been involved with industry standards efforts including the Open GIS Consortium and IEC TC57 Working Group 14, and is currently a member of the Board of GITA. Peter also worked in the geospatial field with IBM.

He has a Masters degree in computer science from Oxford University, finishing top of his year, and a BA in Mathematics, also from Oxford.
