Peter Woodsford, one of the founders and the chairman of LaserScan (now 1Spatial), a former chair of the AGI and the chair of Snowflake Software was awarded an MBE in the Queen’s birthday honours list on Friday for his contribution to the Geographic Information industry.
If ever there was someone who deserved the accolade of “gentle man” it is Peter. A knowledgeable and provocative thinker and innovator in our industry, he is also an outstanding after dinner speaker.
In an interview with the Cambridge News he said:
“When we started, we were just trying to make maps simpler to use – we’re now a part of the knowledge economy.”
