“We offer our heartfelt condolences to those affected by these tragic occurrences.” said Takor’s CEO & Founder, Amir Farhand. “We know the initial and enduring problems will be massive and hope to provide some assistance in the road to recovery for Texas, the Caribbean and the US East Coast”

Takor is dedicated to helping in this effort by offering any government agency, NGO or other response team, unlimited and free access to Mappt for as long as needed.

Mappt has been used for disaster management and response in the past, as it provides a portable, offline, easy-to-use platform for viewing, collecting, tracking and mapping data, by utilizing the power of location.

Mappt has been used to manage the Ebola outbreak in in West Africa in 2014, for tracking and managing cheetah populations in Iran and for wildfire management in Australia and the US.

The mobile app enables field workers to gather data in an efficient manner, work offline in remote areas without internet access and view, edit and share location based geographical data on Android tablets and smartphones.

“Geospatial data collection, integration and spatial analysis while disaster response teams are out in the field, is critical to the successful response to natural disasters.”, said Alistair Hart, Managing Director of Mangoesmapping.

Mappt is also currently available in the following languages; English; Spanish; Portuguese; Hindi; Indonesian; French; Japanese; Korean; and Farsi, for those in non-English speaking affected areas.

Mappt is ideal for fast deployment in disaster situations and has become an invaluable tool for public response disaster groups and for the United States’ first responders.

Mappt Military is the US Military’s custom version of the mobile GIS and data collection app. It equips soldiers with a geospatially enhanced situational awareness, enabling military personnel to process data in the field faster and more accurately, ensuring better tactical decision making.
