Benjamin Crockett

Business Development Director

Ben has been involved in the Spatial Services and software industry in Australia for the past 7 years. Prior to this Ben had exposure to a range of Spatial Projects in the UK and Europe.

Trained and educated in Sydney in Finance Economics and Law, Ben quickly put aside any aspirations in these fields when he discovered GIS and Spatial Technology.

  • Automated classification of raster imagery and surface cover using e-Cognition technology
  • Compilation of a complete fire history using modeling techniques in FME

Being a Director at Chartis Technology will allow Ben to concentrate on delivering customers the best solution for their project, without bias towards certain desktop technologies.  Ben’s focus at Chartis Technology will be for customers to gain value for money, an upfront costing structure, on time delivery and constant personal contact.
