Our story

Thegeolocator started in 2013 as a project within a company called Lokku Ltd. Lokku's primary product was the real estate search engine Nestoria. In building Nestoria we learned a lot about the challenges of geocoding data from around the world. We also implemented the first ever commercial use of OpenStreetMap (all the way back in the internet dark ages of 2006!), and were one of the first companies to use OpenStreetMap maps instead of Google maps.

2015 Lokku was acquired by Mitula Group. The OpenCage project was spun out as a stand-alone business, and has run independently ever since. Prior to July 2019 we operated as a UK limited company before becoming a German GmbH. Details of that transition can be found on our blog.
