About Us

Important decisions are tough enough, and far trickier when you’re not in control of them.

Dumb data – the old, the imperfect and the convoluted – only muddies the water. Putting your data in the hands of costly consultants removes you even further. And an opinionated and subjective approval chain can unravel everything.

When we started in 2013 to help people make better decisions, it was about making things simpler. But simplifying is very, very complicated.

Finding the best data out there was fundamental. Data that is clean, transparent, and relevant. And if it doesn’t exist, we build it. Then we took it away from the spreadsheets, so you didn’t need an aeronautical degree to figure out a mapping platform. And then we had to figure out how to put our 100+ years of experience and knowledge into your hands.

Everyday we listen to our hundreds of customers and thousands of users around the world. By taking the time to understand how you think about your business, we can overlay you, your sector, and your business meaningfully over our facts and expertise. So everyone can understand it.

It means every decision you make is informed, aligned, and you’re in total control of it.

Who We Help

The world’s most successful brands, across all kinds of  sectors, all kinds of categories, all kinds of countries.

"Without GapMaps we could do due diligence on three future sites a week. Now we can do 50. And we can look at sites from Cairns to Adelaide and make decisions in hours. With the insights from GapMaps in my back pocket, there has never been one occasion where I approached a potential site partner and they said they weren't interested in collaborating. Developers may say, "I can get the same information on RP Data or Google". Anyone who is working this way is wasting their time. As a valuer, why you are not using GapMaps is beyond me."

Retail Fuel Developments

David Browne

“I use GapMaps every day. We visually build out trade areas, create trade data and analyze performance across the group. Good quality data helps pose deeper questions across the business - and this data has a compounding effect - especially when we can leverage it across brands. GapMaps gives the company's directors confidence that we are making decisions based on data, not gut feel. Using a platform like GapMaps helps us build the future of the brand without compromising the integrity of our existing business. Risk increases as your company scales. GapMaps is a powerful risk reduction tool.”

Jason Stubbings | Head of Franchise Sales and Development

"We have worked collaboratively and successfully with GapMaps Advisory, in particular Tony Dimasi and James Turnbull, for research and insight into the numerous changes which we are seeing and will continue to see in Australia’s retail environment and the nature of shopping centres. GapMaps Advisory combines high quality data and location intel technology with expertise and understanding, built over many years, of retailing and shopping centres in Australia."

"Officeworks uses the GapMaps platform and has also called on the services of GapMaps Advisory, in particular Tony Dimasi, for research and insight to assist in developing our network strategy.

Officeworks

Andrew Baker I Senior Property Development Manager

"Working with the GapMaps team has been a wonderful experience. Gapmaps helped us save time and thousands of dollars making decisions on where to build new schools and they continually seek feedback from us on how to improve what is already a great tool."

Data Analyst

Education

“GapMaps provides the high-quality data and insights necessary for us to develop and refine our network strategy. The GapMaps platform is very simple to use, meaning that we’re better able to connect our business decision making with data and effectively communicate those decisions to stakeholders. The ability to toggle between travel time and radius catchments has greatly improved our understanding of our catchment areas and market coverage.”

Early Childhood Management Services

Andrew Hume | CEO

"Gapmaps helped us make smarter decisions on site location using defined demographics/profiles and ranking areas. Immediacy of information adds significant value in trade discussions"

Food and Beverages

Data and Insights Manager

"Before GapMaps we were using one of the global mapping software products. We’ve found the GapMaps data to be more granular and accurate and the platform is so much easier to use."

Business Development Executive

“The only tool you need”
A pleasure to use a software that is rich with multiple layers of data allowing one to quickly ascertain all aspects of a site. There is no Gap Analysis tool better on the market.

Commercial Real Estate

Leasing Executive

"GapMaps has a unique ability to create high quality location intelligence data and insights in some very data-challenged countries. The quality of their data and simple to use platform has enabled me to introduce world class market and network planning processes to businesses where network planning had previously been quite rudimentary."
