Our Team

Alcis’ Managing Director, Richard Brittan, founded the company in 2004 with a vision to use his expertise, coupled with great data, to answer questions and improve situations in fragile and complex environments around the world. 


The company has grown and now has unrivalled experience working with governments, multilateral development agencies and NGOs. 


We work globally and the team share a common goal to make satellite imagery, geospatial analysis and visualisation more relevant to non expert users.

The Alcis team is made up of geospatial and analytical experts with skills and experience of working in complex environments all around the world. Our people are trusted and experienced at working within sensitive, political and volatile situations to deliver vital understanding for decision makers.

Our success is dependent upon the collective energy, intelligence, and contributions of all of our staff.


Having a strong and close team is critical for our success and wherever we are and whatever we are doing, we support and encourage each other.

We make maps, lots of maps and we make maps matter.  Our maps provide insight and information to help decision makers working in fragile and complex places. 


We were happy to join in the #30DayMapChallenge.   Here are  a few of our maps. To see all 30 maps, click here
