Today Emu Analytics, a leading data science and software company, have published a White Paper titled ‘A Sustainable Future. Preparing for Electric Vehicles’ that identifies that by 2020 an additional 83,500 charging points will be required to meet the demand from electric vehicles (EVs).

Jake, our Junior Web Application Developer and newest member of Emu, has been very busy lately taking a leading role in the development of our new product, Aurora. And as we do with every new joiner, we challenged him to write a blog that showcased his interests, is based on location insights and uses our technology. As Jake is a bit of a language buff he chose to create a Toponomy map of the UK, and as he needed to display a lot of location data in a performant environment he chose the visualisation components of Aurora to do it on.
