Takor’s Mappt Application

 

Perth-based geospatial company, Takor Group, has become a public listed company following an acquisition by Australian medical technology company, Bone Medical Limited.

Formed in 2009 as Scantherma Pty Ltd, Takor entered the geospatial industry as a provider of satellite imaging technologies for various sectors including mining, environmental and government. Takor now specialises in research and development in the field of mobile mapping technologies, particularly offline systems for broad scale use.

Takor’s core product, Mappt, is an Android based mobile mapping and data collection system for businesses, government and academia that has reached over 2,000 users in 83 countries.

Takor has also developed and released Kojai, a location based social media app for Apple’s iOS, which allows users to geo-tag photos and posts for Facebook and Twitter to share moments and places with friends.

In March 2014, Takor was also commissioned to assist in the search for the missing flight MH370.

“The geospatial market is a rapidly growing market due to the rising importance of location data and advancements in various sectors,” said Mr Rob Towner, Chairman of Bone Medical. “Takor has sound management with an established business and a clear vision of democratising the geospatial and location based technology industries globally.”
