The Land App: online GIS made simple


About the client

Company name

Land App




United Kingdom



The Land App is an easy-to-use online platform for designing and managing land projects. The idea for the app first came about in 2015 when its founder, Tim Hopkin, was struggling to find all the information and the paper maps he needed to manage his family’s farm in Surrey.

Thanks to his collaboration with the team at Spyrosoft, the application is now used by more than 17000 users.

Streamlining land management

Depending on paper versions of the maps can make managing any estate difficult. The Land App aims to resolve that issue and help with other challenges like sharing information, submitting applications, and planning future projects. The other existing software solutions for online mapping were either expensive or difficult to use, making the important information scattered among several applications. 

The Land App lets the users share online maps with all agriculture and property management third parties. Its functionalities are optimised for the needs of both estate agencies and individual users, and they fit the legislative regulations in the UK.  

Project goals and needs

The Land App team had a great idea and MVP but needed a technology partner with an understanding of the geospatial domain that would take the product to the next level and take care of all software delivery lifecycle from designing via implementation, cloud optimisation, support and maintenance. The main purpose of the app was to allow the user to create an online map of an area of their choice, on their own, and by following a detailed manual.

Another important goal was achieving a product-market fit for the app. Once the collaboration with Spyrosoft has started, The Land App team has been able to focus on the business and product roadmap. This – in turn – allowed them to work faster and accomplish all the milestones they had planned for.  

The collaboration with Spyrosoft

In the early days, activities and tasks revolved around tweaking and maintaining the solution while designing scalable and robust cloud-based and feature-rich next-gen solutions, but the team has grown as the scope of the project has become larger, and The Land App itself has evolved into a more mature product. 

Thanks to the collaboration with our company, The Land App is now becoming a leading app in the nature capital and sustainability domain. It is currently used by more than 17000 users. The platform is also now being used by various public institutions, including national land registries and parks. 

With the Land App achieving the product-market fit in 2019, the team is now ready for a surge of new users and adding new functionalities. 


For this project, we’ve used the following technologies: Angular7, Rx6, TypeScript, OpenLayers 4.6,, SASS, NodeJS, TypeScript, Express, RxJs,  Mongoose (MongoDB), PG (Postgres/Postgis), Redis ChargeBee, OAuth and AWS SDK.
