Broadly speaking, geography seeks to better understand the interactions between humans and their surroundings.  My area of expertise as a geographer is in understanding how people interact with and are influenced by urban environments.

I approach this broad question through a variety of techniques, from traditional research methods such as public consultation and literature reviews to mining volunteered geographic information and open data sets.


Urban Geography and Policy

Matthew Dance Consulting specializes in facilitation and mediation activities, primarily in the environmental policy development domain. With a skillset that includes Process Design, Project Management, and Facilitation, I am able to define the relevant questions, frame them within an appropriate consensus building process, and achieve success in the form of policy or software requirements. I have extensive experience working with diverse groups of stakeholders that include NGO’s, landowners, government, industry and academics.

In addition to environmental policy, I have combined my facilitation skills with an  M.A. in Geography to build maps and visualize spatial data.
