We have worked with many large public and private sector clients, giving us a wide depth of knowledge and experience.
Being independent means we have no interest in selling software, we look purely at our clients' business needs and current infrastructure to help  find the best and most cost-effective solution.
 We always look for solutions which are sustainable and enduring, which is why so many of our clients return to us again and again for consultancy,
Owner, Salford GIS
Rob Knight


Since graduating from the University of Newcastle upon Tyne in 1985, Rob has worked in the Surveying and Mapping industry, gaining a reputation as a highly experienced Geo-Information consultant and trainer.

Starting as a Land Surveyor, he developed an involvement in various data capture techniques such as Surveying, Photogrammetry and Map Digitisation. This provided a solid technical grounding in aspects of GIS which enabled Rob to gradually develop a role as a GIS trainer and consultant.

Since the late 1990s Rob has delivered GIS training courses, mostly in ESRI products, to a wide range of customers in both the public and private sector, and in so doing has developed a comprehensive appreciation of the broad range of applications for this technology.

In recent years, in addition to training and consultancy projects, Rob has spent time working with a major Chartered Surveying firm specialising in utilities infrastructure projects, and so has extensive experience of surveying, mapping and GIS requirements in support of DCO Applications for major linear utillity projects, e.g. Utility Searches, Land Referencing, Land Plans, Works Plans etc.


He also provides technical support, and has undertaken a number of consultancy and outsourcing projects mainly, but not exclusively, for Local Government clients.

Rob has authored all of Salford GIS’s ArcGIS training documentation, and is constantly looking at ways of developing and improving the courses. He's currently working on developing training courses for ArcGIS Pro, Online and Collector.
