"Jeremy Morley is Chief Geospatial Scientist at Ordnance Survey. He has worked in geospatial research since the mid-90s, starting in the former Dept. Photogrammetry and Surveying at University College London before moving to the University of Nottingham in 2009 as Geospatial Science Theme Leader in the Nottingham Geospatial Institute. His early career covered topics in environmental Earth observation of the Greenland ice sheet and radar mapping of the British Isles’ terrain. From this base he moved into geographic information science, focusing on topics including crowd-sourcing and citizen science, open and interoperable geographical information services, and applications of geospatial science in fields from plant sciences to planetary mapping. At Ordnance Survey he leads the Research and Education team who carry out research and standards development in collaboration with universities and other research organisations, and promote spatial literacy and geospatial education from primary schools through to higher education."
