We have extensive experience in conducting research
and consultations regarding zoning and land use planning.

We know the topic of public participation from various sides:
we conduct research projects, we work in neighborhood councils and non-governmental organizations.

We offer our services to local government units and other institutions that want to integrate the knowledge and opinions of residents in their work on city development, including spatial planning, urban renewal, transportation planning, or participatory budgeting. We place great emphasis on the quality of the participatory processes and tailoring technologies to the specific needs of each project.

So far, we have completed over 40 projects using geo-questionnaires, geo-discussion and geo-presentations for cities such as Warsaw, Poznań, and Łódź. We helped to carry out successful public consultations on such issues as land use planning, traffic calming, urban space aesthetics, and a bike rental system. We are motivated by the will to support local governments, urban planners, researchers and residents in creating cities that are good for living and environmentally friendly.

We use the name and shape of a hexagon because it refers to numerical models used in econometrics and geoinformation, and shows the diversity of perspectives included in participatory approaches to planning. Many of our maps use this shape to present data.

Let’s work together!
