ThunderMaps wins New Zealand Spatial Excellence Award for Export
ThunderMaps the Wellington-based provider of off the shelf mobile reporting software won the Spatial Industries Business Association Award for Export at the 2016 New Zealand Spatial Excellence Awards.
The Awards were announced at a gala dinner held at Te Papa Tongarewa in Wellington on Wednesday, 16 November, and were presented by the Minister of Land Information, Hon Louise Upston.
ThunderMaps’ Managing Director Clint Van Marrewijk says, “Winning the Award for Export at the Spatial Excellence Awards, a national GIS industry event, is fantastic and a credit to the ThunderMaps team.
“Although ThunderMaps is a specialist GIS app provider, we don’t usually even mention the term ‘GIS’ with clients. Instead, we try to focus on the solution we provide – a safer world and engaged and informed cities. Never-the-less it was great to mix-and-mingle with our peers and learn from experienced GIS professionals that know much more about the history of GIS and breadth of the GIS industry. All things considered, this win is really a tribute to our inspirational development team, and the world-leading product they have produced together.”
