We are committed to develop innovative and advanced location-aware technology for mobile devices.
In order to make the most of the local capabilities of modern mobile devices, a versatile digital map engine is key. Maps will remain the most efficient user interface for the booming market of location-aware services. The most promising, most dynamic digital map of them all is the OpenStreetMap project.
We strive to fuel the progress and continuous improvement of this map by creating a reliable and flexible technology basis for the use of the OpenStreetMap in digital applications on Mobile Devices and on the Web.
Our apps showcase the capabilities of our map technology. More than 3.5 million apps have been sold to date for the leading mobile platforms Apple iOS and Google Android. The apps have topped overall and category toplists in numerous countries. The customer rating averages across the stores are very positive. In short: our map engine is continuously benchmarked in the toughest way possible: by having to prove itself in the market.
We cover the entire value chain of the app development and app marketing process by relying both on in-house knowledge and a network of proven partners.
