Communicating social issues and inspiring possible solutions.

The Mapify concept utilises theories around social networking, mapping and social capital and advises how best to apply this methodology to redevelopment processes. Piloted first in Church Street West London, and backed by Westminster Council, the Voist team worked closely with both council and community to explore how their 20 year redevelopment plan could be more inclusive, progressive and socially diverse.

Developing the Mapify methodology

Vosit has now worked on a number of projects that have utilised the Mapify methodology and our tech services. Voist has developed and designed a number of tools, apps and projects that have met the needs of Councils, service providers, communities, commercial companies and developers.


“It remains the best available method of quantifying social capital in order to inform funding and other planning decisions. It’s a hugely cost-effective way for making the area and its developments transparent to all.”

(Martin Whittles – Infrastructure and Public Realm Planning, Westminster City Council)

“Consultees were able to submit their comments at the exhibition days and also through the Mapify website – this meant that we heard from more people than on other projects. The final report, which will form part of the planning submission, gives a clear summary of the consultation process and the issues raised.”

(Anne Wynne – SUSD)

“Voist have really made the most out of the data we had from our consultation, which wasn’t an easy task.”

(Monika Pawlowska, Church Street Neighborhood Forum)


We examine connections, between people and places. We look at environments, community hubs and inspiring individuals that encourage and grow networks. We explore what value can be determined and derived from social capital; and how harnessing this information can influence the success of a local community. To do this we we co-design tech solutions, run programs, workshops and conduct one to one sessions to gather key information needed to direct successful development and placemaking.
