So, what exactly is Maptia?


We are on a mission to build the most inspirational map in the world.

To beautifully record our most memorable experiences in every corner of the globe and build the 'home' for places online.

We all want to experience life to the full.

To find and immerse ourselves in experiences, around the corner at home or on the other side of the globe when travelling, that will help make our lives happier and more fulfilled.

Why are we passionate about building Maptia?

It’s quite simple really. We believe in what we are creating.

We believe that during most people’s lives they have far fewer memorable experiences of the world than they would wish, and with Maptia we think we have an idea that could help solve this.

An idea that could inspire and enable people to live happier and more fulfilled lives.

We also believe that if we all work together to contribute to something bigger than ourselves, then we can create something remarkable. Something lasting that can make our world a more understanding place. Something that can contribute value for the generation to come.
