Seppe on LinkedIn:

His career started with the UK military where he worked for 10 years in various mapping and geo-intelligence roles, during which time he completed one of the UK’s first PhDs in GIS. He then went on to run the ground-breaking GIS undergraduate programme at Kingston University before being head hunted to run Longman GeoInformation for the publishers Pearson.

Following a management buy-out he became CEO of The GeoInformation Group in 1998 which went on to publish geospatial datasets and undertake many projects in the UK and abroad. The company is best known for the early aerial imagery databases developed in the mid 1990’s, published as Cities Revealed, and more recently the UKMap large scale topographic map base and the UKBuildings database of building type and age. The company also created the telecoms clutter data used by many mobile operators in the UK. The GeoInformation Group was sold to Verisk Inc in 2016.

Seppe continues with his interest in mapping, writing regularly for the GeoConnexions magazine and being involved in the British Cartographic Society, where he is currently President for the second time.
