About Us

Welcome to the project that 'escaped' the lab

2015: The Idea

While many wonderful companies start in garages, Geo-Appsmith was born in a "Lab". Founder Douglas Mbura, while working as a technician at RCMRD observed that many businesses & organizations were frustrated with the way traditional GIS software is set up. He noted that many were actively searching for intuitive solution to solve their location-related challenges. He came up with the idea of creating applications with features tailored to the users' specific requirement. 

2016-Today: The Company

A year later, what had started as a project idea "escaped" the Lab and became Geo-Appsmith. Within a year, the company had touched a nerve and cut a niche in the market by creating impactful solutions for many organizations such as the DSW and IUCN. One of our earliest parner was Luciad before it got acquired by Hexagon. Today, we continue to design, develop and deploy location based applications for organizations in Health, Agriculture, Environment, Transport & Logistics, Telecommunication, Education, Forestry, etc. 


We create solutions that delight !

If you can browse on the internet, then you can use our tools!

Mobile Mapping

We build mobile mapping tools and train organizations in adopting such technlogies to collect data. Our tools have been used by many organizations to collect tens-of-thousands of data points in remote and challenging environments. 


We help in turning data into actionable business outcomes through enrichment of data, visualization and iterative analysis. We are moving map making process from ‘authoring a map’ to ‘programming the visualization.’

Remote Sensing

We deploy AI-ML for efficient classification of spatial imagery. We have developed algorithms with capacity to handle data of high dimensionality and to map classes with complex characteristics.


Take a Look Inside Some of Our Work



 Praga Project Geo-Portal

The International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) is a Union composed of both government and civil society organisations. Our web-developers were involved in developing a Geoportal for managing, sharing and dissiminating spatial and non spatial datasets and maps for the PRAGA Project.
The objective of the project is to strengthen the capacity of local and national stakeholders in pastoral areas to assess Land Degradation (LD) and make informed decisions to promote Sustainable Land Management (SLM).



Inventory Management System 

Soulco is a multinational integrator of IT and telecom products and services. Headquartered in Belgium (Europe) and with offices in Algeria, Kenya, Egypt, U.A.E and Pakistan the company operates throughout the Middle East and Africa. In Kenya the company runs over 300 sites spread across the 47 counties. In 2019, we were engaged by Soulco to help build a GIS-Based Inventory Management system, to help monitor the company's vast assets in real-time thereby enabling maintenance engineers to pinpoint incident locations so as to resolve issues much faster. 



Web-Mapping Project

Deutsche Stiftung Weltbevölkerung (DSW) is a global organization that's committed to ensuring that young people have access to youth-friendly sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) services, and supporting sustainable and rights-based population development. We have worked with DSW to map hundreds of youth centers and youth clubs in Kenya, Ethiopia & Tanzania using mobile-based survey tools. We also helped build an interactive online web map showing the location, pictures, description and relevant details of these centers/clubs. 


We are able to locate, track and map
static and moving assets in real-time!


We tap onto the existing satellite constellations to show location of objects, wherever in the world they are.


We create solutions that levarage on existing cellular networks to relay data even in the most remote parts of the world.


For local deployments and more cost sensitive applications, we build solutions that use LoRA to send and receive data.


We use WPS or WiFi Positioning system to locate objects indoor, even in enclosed spaces where there is no clear view of the sky.
