One person's roots and someone else's routes present a place as significant as imaginable!

It’s all about Places and stories. We are discovering destinations through the stories told about them from the best storytellers and vice versa-we are discovering the stories at the places they took place.

Mappo is developing the most advanced state-of-the-art technologies to fulfill our mission to map the world’s culture. Whether is it historical culture, pop culture, or high culture, tangible or intangible culture.

Our technology is a new generation of curating and storytelling that allows people worldwide to have enjoyable, easy access to culture. We invite any member of the culture, heritage, and tourism ecosystem to join us in our mission.

If you got the stories or if you are promoting a destination or an attraction, we invite you to join us and add innovation and creativity to enhance your marketing efforts.

About Us

Innovation meets culture

Mappo was founded by and for culture lovers, the curious, the knowledgeable thirsty, and travelers in their bodies or souls.
From the old testament to the latest Pop culture hit, people love following heroes, legendary characters, and places that were a muse for their creators.
Places are essential characters in our history, literature, novels, fiction, or nonfiction. And what is a better way to explore destinations and get to know their culture than the local stories?

Mappo has developed a unique AI technology that curates, scans, and shows quotes and short snippets from stories, literature, music, local traditions, and heritage, whether historical or modern, and creates Points Of Interest (POI) on the map where the stories occurred.
Our users can learn, discover, experience, and consume tangible and intangible local culture through the content they like.

Mappo is the first to develop an In-car culture-inspired application for connected cars with Ford motor company with location-based and real-time routes.

We are proud to be a bridge between Automotive’s & OEM manufacturers, Culture & Heritage communities, Tourism ministries, publishers, and people around the globe understanding the broadest sense of a place and getting to know the history, art, and people of a location, discovering its customs and enjoying at first hand a different way of seeing the world.
