Our Belief

Nowadays, location technology for outdoor is already so mature and become a commoditized necessity that supports numerous amazing applications which deeply influence every aspect in our everyday life. Indeed, indoor space is also a majority part of everybody’s living. More than 80% of our time spent inside an indoor space where location-based technology is minimal.

To make indoor mapping truly scalable, we strive to develop a software-based, infrastructure-free indoor mapping and positioning solution that so cost-effective that every individual can participate and contribute, and we also establish a global platform for creating, organize, and maintain comprehensive indoor map data for public sharing.

To accelerate the value creation on top, we share our expertise & technology with our partners and support them to build fantastic application combining their industry knowledge. Our ultimate vision is to create a self-sustaining indoor mapping ecosystem that makes location-based information globally accessible.
