Transforming spatial data into holistic visual narratives
If you didn’t have to spend so much time wrangling
geospatial data, if you could create interactive
visualisations quickly, if you could responsibly include
sensitive data - what could you do?
Places are complex:
our consultancy makes understanding them simpler.
We can take even the most complex ‘what ifs’ and turn
them into interactive visualisations, helping you to
inform and develop more holistic designs, and bring more
transparency to stakeholder engagement.
Our expertise lies in collating, analysing, and
visualising datasets to maximise the outcomes of your
project, supporting more data-driven planning and advice.
→ Improve the quality of your design proposals

1. You pose a question
E.g. What opportunities does my community have within 15
minutes, by walking or cycling?
2. We select the right data sets, and formulate the right
queries, to answer your question
We use our knowledge of available data and deep
understanding of analysis algorithms to suggest how you
can answer, broaden or deepen the scope of your
questions, in line with your project needs.
3. We visualise data in an interactive map, that you are
free to explore
Unique to Diagonal is the inclusion of data exploration
in our mapping tool Bedrock. This allows you to freely
interact with the results.
4. We share our findings in a format that works best for
you and your stakeholders
In addition to dynamic data visualisation in Bedrock, we
can support your project with (white label)
presentations, PDFs, or in any other format.
"The ability to all the way through be able to have a
conversation, to build up a rapport, to build up trust
between us, has really been valuable."
