Spatial Interest is a set of online resources for grassroots collaborations working on ecologic and economic issues in local communities. Most of the organization's work is in land and forestry management.
The Spatial Interest website provides discussion forums, rss feeds, email news bulletins, community calendars, collections of articles, and stories and photo galleries — all of which are mapped geographically.
Dennis Murphy, who created Spatial Interest in 2007, says he decided on using SiteKreator after having the service highly recommended in several places. "Several years ago I had done some work with FrontPage and didn’t want to repeat that experience! I was looking for a company that provided easier to use tools," Murphy says.
Although not everything Murphy was looking for was available at the time he started Spatial Interest, Murphy says he has been "really impressed" with the response from the SiteKreator support team.
“Several years ago I had done some work with FrontPage and didn’t want to repeat that experience! I was looking for a company that provided easier to use tools.”
"I sent a couple of emails to tech support describing what I wanted to do and the response was amazing. For one feature request, tech support told me they were working on it and asked me to be patient. They said it would be there in ten days to two weeks, and indeed it was," Murphy says.
About six months after starting to use SiteKreator, Murphy received an email from SiteKreator support with an offer for free consultation as part of the package he had chosen.
"I couldn't believe they reached out to me! The recommendations greatly improved the site's design. I am still using the logo," Murphy says.
Spatial Interest was originally intended to help promote Murphy's consulting work. In the three years since it started, it has significantly changed Murphy's business as it changed the type of work website visitors approach him for.
"I have recently worked on proposals for other collaborative groups and this is helping me expand and change my business," Murphy says.
