Welcome to Knowledge Mappers

Knowledge Mappers is a unique, global, digital mapping, consultancy & publishing company with expertise in:-

  • "traditional" geographic mapping & spatial analysis using tools such as GIS & Google Maps, and the creation of map-enabled, online portals for sharing analysis results, intelligence insight & resources with stakeholders.

  • mapping any data / information / knowledge resouces with tools such as Corel (Mindjet) MindManager to give them a visual stucture that greatly impoves their accessibility, and the creation of resource index / basemap template / overview ('dashboard') maps, which can be easily shared with stakeholders.

Our ground-breaking products & services 'visually connect' people with the knowledge / information / data they need to know so that individuals, teams, organisations & communities can make the most of all the resources that are available to them, gain a better insight into their world, and generally do what they need to do to move forward quicker, easier and with a lot less stress :-)


Featured Resource: Countries of the World General Research Atlas

Our Countries of the World General Research Atlas map brings together a range of free, definitive, online general & geographic knowledge resources about every country in the world (as defined by ISO3166-1) - including the BBC, CIA and Wikipedia - into a single, visually stuctured document that makes desktop researching a breeze. Although it contains more than 3700 hyperlinks and makes full use of imagery within it to futher aid user navigation, the native MindManager map file is only 1.5 MB in size. The HTML vesion, created by export from MindManager (one of its many unique features), is only 4.5 MB and can be viewed in any HTML5 compatible browser. This means that the map can easily be shared with non MindManager users by embedding it in an existing webpage (such as this one - see below), hosted as a stand-alone webpage (map opens in a new browser tab), or sent as an email attachment which can be viewed offline.

Note -'Click and drag' or use scrollbars to pan around the map, and the slider/buttons in the bottom right to zoom in/out, auto zoom to fit the whole map into the frame in its curently expanded state, focus and completely expand a selected topic, center the map on a selected topic, and search the map for a specified text string. Hyperlinks will open in a new browser tab
The HTML map export feature in MindManager 2018 is still not fully developed, so some HTML5 maps may differ slightly from the original MindManager (.mmap) file. Also HTML5 maps are not supported on all platforms in all browsers.


What We Do "In A Nutshell"

Our skillset lies in the creation of digital information maps & visual knowledge framework resources on just about any subject, that help individuals, teams, organisations & communities:-

  • more efficiently discover, capture, understand, organise, manage, retrieve, share and act on the information they need to know, in order to get done what they need to do, and make the world a better place.

  • make connections and gain business-intelligence insights they didn't have before.

  • avoid "information overload".

  • save time and money and increase their return-on-investment.

  • generally get a lot more done with a lot less stress... :-).


We do this by:-

  • creating digital knowledge maps from public domain information sources and making them available to everybody on our online mapstore.

  • creating bespoke digital knowledge map resources for clients so that they can do what they do better.

  • providing consultancy and training in GIS and MindManager - our 2 main software tools - to help people do it for themselves.

  • working in as agile a way as we can.

Our School Travel Health Check spatial analysis service is an example of a GI consultancy project for one local authority that soon "grew arms and legs" to become a ground-breaking nationally available service. The STHC provides local authorities, school communities and other stakeholders interested in how children travel to school and how far they travel to get there, with quality spatial intelligence data via an online portal. This enables them to quantify and visualise the actual school travel situation down to individual school level, which helps them to better target thier limited behaviour-change resources to achieve modeshift to more active and sustainable modes of travel on the "school run".

Public Sector Mapping

Our unique information mapping skillset and experience (we all have been government workers at some point), makes us the ideal choice for working with public sector organisations.

We are on several public sector supplier frameworks. We are part of the UK Government Digital Outcomes & Specialists Framework (DOS2), making us the only supplier out of the 2700+ on the UK Public Sector Digital Marketplace offering our unique combination of geographic and business information mapping skills and expertise (read our blog post here). We will also shortly be part of the Scottish Government Digital Suppliers Dynamic Purchasing System, and are in the process of joining the Scottish Local Government Improvement Services Associates Framework.

Will continue to create our map-enabled online information portals for UK public sector clients (such as this one for our School Travel Health Check spatial analysis service for schools and local authorities), as we have done since 2005. However we are also keen to help the knowledge workers of the UK public sector realise the benefits of making Mindjet MindManager their “digital tool of first resort”, for example for all aspects & phases of their agile / digital transformation projects (just one of the many applications of MindManager).



Note: As we are a United Kingdom based company we price the resources on this e-store in Pounds Sterling (GBP) and this will be the currency in which payments are made. Prices are also shown in US dollars (USD) but this is an approximation based on an exchange rate of 1 GBP = 1.31193 USD / 1 USD = 0.76224 GBP (as quoted on on the 1st August 2018). For comparison the Euro rate is 1 GBP = 1.12076 EUR / 1 EUR = 0.89226 GBP. The actual price international customers are charged by their bank will depend on the exchange rate at the time of the transaction and the payment method used.
