Knowtr was established in 2007 by Dr Steve Spall. Having spent 14 years working with computer simulations of weather, ocean and climate, Steve set up Knowtra to make environmental knowledge accessible and relevant for business needs.
Knowtra's philosophy is to employ cutting edge web and Information Technology solutions to deliver the environmental information business needs to operate efficiently, safely and sustainably.
Knowtra is building a range of in-house skills, with expertise in environment, IT and the needs of the business end user. These skills are supplemented through close collaboration with organisations with complementary resources and capabilities.
