I'm Matthew T. Perry and I write software for geospatial data analysis.
I work for Mapbox, building technology to help you build great maps.
Facilitate better decisions through custom GIS, data analysis and software solutions by:
- Building and improving core open source spatial data tools and technology.
- Applying that technology to encourage data-driven management of our natural resources.
- Bridge the gap between the worlds of GIS, Software, IT, Statistics and Data Science.
- Going beyond the map; finding novel ways to derive more value from geospatial data.
This site features technical articles that ease the technology hurdles in this game. Hopefully these resources will help you realize the potential of your data, to integrate it with other datasets and tools that can provide new insights, and to communicate those insights via the web.
I currently live in St George's, Grenada, the small island nation in the West Indies. Along for the ride are my lovely wife and 2 yr old son. My former sports of choice (mountain biking and backcountry skiing) don't really apply here in the Caribbean! Instead my passion has shifted to exploring the jungle roads on my cross bike, swimming, scuba diving and snorkeling around our coral reefs. I'm big on cooking improvisational meals (most of which are edible), reading non-fiction, and an all around passion for amateur science, fitness and technology hacking.
