We are Sartography

We apply the science, aesthetics, and techniques of cartography to model complex software systems in ways that communicate information effectively.

Agile Architecture

We develop diagrams that encourage cooperation and shared understanding. We take a ground up, holistic approach to develop engaging models that communicate a unified vision of the future.

API Development

We create responsive simple APIs that fully respect the ideals of RESTful architecture. We can apply these techniques in Java, Scala, and Python.

Server Diagrams

We have a deep and abiding respect for System Administration and the complexity of highly distributed systems. We can communicate this respect effectively, engaging whole organizations in the discussion.

Focused Diagrams

We can help you solve your own problems. When catastrophes loom and negotiations stall, we can provide you with the tools you need to reengage your team. Sometimes its just a lost, minor detail, that once uncovered allows a way forward.

Open Source Consultations

We actively contribute to open source projects. We can help any business take advantage of the same open source projects in use at Google, Amazon, Facebook, Twitter and a host of other game changing companies.

Big Data for Local Minds

We enjoy helping small businesses take advantage of big data. From Google Analytics to Apache Solr, there is tremendous technology we can bring to bear on solving issues and making local business a global power.
