From a university spin-off to a global SaaS platform

Maptionnaire was born when a group of urban planning researchers and professionals based in Helsinki discovered an emerging problem: there was an increasing need for cities and urban planners to engage the public and to get real input from local residents.

However, the methods in use at the time were not enough for taking people’s opinions into account in a large-scale and actionable form.

When cities began to contact us about our work with PPGIS — the use of opinions and subjective data in GIS applications — it became apparent that there was a greater demand for our solutions than what could be offered through university projects. Anna and Maarit, the founders of Maptionnaire and both doctors of science in land-use and planning, decided it was time to venture onwards.

Our company, Mapita, was founded in 2011 to provide a solution for anyone to create their own map-based questionnaires. Since then, Maptionnaire has developed from a map-based survey tool to an entire platform for community engagement. Throughout the years, the whole Maptionnaire team has been working hard to develop the service to what it is now.
