About

At nazka mapps we transform (your) data into smart and high-performant interactive maps. We enrich data, make them location-based and easily accessible. All your data become visible and useful at a glance. We are focused on mapps that matter. Our developments contribute to a better mobility, health and climate.

nazka is inspired by the 'Lineas de Nazca' or 'Nazca lines'. The shallow channels in the ground in the Nazca desert (Peru) were made between 400 and 650 AD. These simple but enormous figures are only recognizable when viewed in a larger perspective. This also reflects the approach of nazka mapps: work on the details with an overview of the whole.

nazka mapps is a young company based in Flanders (Belgium). We are a dedicated and international team of full-stack web developers, engineers, data scientists and designers. We all work together at our office in Leuven. Our team is innovative, agile, hands-on and has a strong background on mapping, remote sensing, GIS and web development.

Frederic Aerts

Frederic realizes that websites are a great deal more than their static designs. When he realizes designs with code, he gets everything right – including the parts the designer got wrong. Having been a trusted advisor to companies like PwC, Wavecast, and Kunstmaan, Frederic has proven himself capable of taking on projects of any size. He excels at breaking down static designs into dynamic web components that are flexible, reusable and bulletproof. He spends his leisure time rambling on and on about the game rules of Mölkky.
