a great team
We are Geomatico s. coop. galega, a company that has been specialising in the analysis and publication of geographical information since 2011. We like to establish a personalised client-developer relationship, with no intermediaries.
We believe in collaboration, knowledge sharing and transparency in our projects, which is why we use and produce Open Source code. We are also committed and contribute as much as possible to collaborative geospatial initiatives. Proof of this are our contributions to projects such as QGIS, Geoserver, Geotools, GeoNetwork or 52n SOS.
Studying Marine Sciences at the University of Vigo, he learned about GIS. From there he began his training in this field, sharing his passion for GIS with another of his interests, software development. For a few years after he "finished" his training at the University he was looking for a way to enter the world of GIS professionally, and he achieved it in 2006. From that moment on, he aimed to define his career by setting up with other colleagues, what is now, after 10 years of experience, his current way of life. Always seeking to be close to the free software communities (xeoinquedos), organising events (geocamp.es) and participating in social initiatives such as ARMH, Amnesty International, CIVIO, Open Arms and others.

Since childhood he has loved escaping into nature, always with a good map to hand. He started out as a GIS programmer in Aurensis. During his time at the Institut Cartogràfic de Catalunya he was introduced to the world of free software and open standards. Since 2010 he has been developing his career as an independent consultant for a wide range of organisations, from public and private multinationals to humble projects deep rooted in the territory. He participated in the organisation of FOSS4G 2010, from which the first group of Geoinquietos was created, in Barcelona. Areas of specialisation: Design and technical direction of geospatial solutions, ETL processes with geospatial information, development of interactive front-ends for geospatial analysis
A trained draughtsman, he discovered the world of GIS in 2008 and has been a cartography enthusiast ever since. Since then he has trained in different technologies in the world of programming and systems for application in geomatics. Active member of the Spanish-speaking communities of OSGeo and QGIS
He started out computer programming in a consultancy, whose name he does not care to remember, and he began to enjoy it at Geodata Sistemas. He worked there for 8 years, moving from web developer specialising in front-end technologies and map servers to project manager. He worked as a geofreelance from 2012 and in 2015 he joined Geomatico to work on web project development and training in open source geospatial technologies.
