Originally Forth Valley GIS, we started in 1993 as a team of three providing corporate GIS services to Central Regional Council. Following reorganisation of local government, we established a highly innovative shared GIS service to the new unitary authorities in the area - Clackmannanshire, Falkirk and Stirling Councils.

Our shared services model grew from strength-to-strength over the next decade, and in 2007, we began operating as arms-length commercial company. We renamed, rebranded and relocated as thinkWhere in 2013, and now have a team of some 25 staff.


Our customers include:

  • Central Government

What Our Clients Say...

"I really like the fact that the thinkWhere team is made up of GIS professionals rather than just people who answer and log a phone call. It means that they’re able to immediately provide expert advice and they truly understand the importance of dealing with issues promptly and effectively!"
