How and where can I get it?

Representation UK was released as a beta (development) version in January 2019. It is currently available upon request and has been shared with a select group of organizations.

You can view a video tour on Vimeo here: https://vimeo.com/innovat10n/represent-uk

You will require a password to access the video. Please send us a message at contact@informat10n.com and we will happily share this with you.

You can also download the application and explore it interactively on your own PC or Mac, but we are currently restricting full access to this as it is in development. We are seeking partnerships with organisations who value evidence, education and access to information, and who can help us to fully realise the potential of interactive information resources such as this.

We are also offering live demonstrations in the UK. We can either visit your office or arrange a live video call. This is offered without obligation, and we would simply like to show you our work, get your feedback and answer any questions you may have.

Future Public Release

We aim to make our applications accessible to as many people as possible. This means we develop them so that they can run on a wide range of computers and devices. It also means that we make them affordable.

  • Individuals will be able to download the application and accompanying resources for a one-off payment.
  • Organisations will be able to purchase a multi-user licence, which allows them to use the application within teams, departments or for public display.
