Mapumental is a start up of mySociety, the organisation that builds award-winning non-profit websites and carries out commercial work for clients such the BBC, The Guardian, Google, and national and local government.
We first started working on maps in 2006, when the Department for Transport approached mySociety to work with public transport data. The result was a totally new way to map information: we quickly saw that, using this powerful public transport data and our own coding, we could display complex data in simple, intuitive ways.
In 2007 we started developing prototypes for real time maps that could handle huge amounts of travel data. In 2009 we won an investment loan from Channel 4 and Screen West Midlands to build a prototype tool, and, in 2010, a full version of Mapumental. Have a look at our Demo tool.
Today we are working on multiple ideas, developing products, and talking to companies about new ways of navigating locations, visualising data and planning environments.
If you’d like to work with us, we’re open for business. Just drop us a line.
