Company History

We are a progressive company with extensive industry experience in hardware infrastructure design, cyber security, software development and corporate consulting. Whilst we are a very small company we have over 36 years experience in the I.T industry with clients throughout Australia as well as our own interest, ExplorOz.

ExplorOz.com was created in the year 2000 after David and Michelle completed an extensive 2 year expedition around Australia. As committed outdoor enthusiasts, they recognised a need for an online information resource & community for 4WD & RV enthusiasts and built the website based on their own personal interests and experiences and together with community input the site evolved into a unique source of services for this niche interest group.

EOTopo maps first became available to download from our website in 2013. The map was built using the standard raster map file formats required for use in the popular mapping software programs of the time (ECW, OZF). These programs are only suitable for Windows or Android devices, which was most frustrating to the other 50% of our customers who wanted to use our maps on their iPads but found it was incompatible. There was significant demand in the market for EOTopo maps to be compatible with iOS, which eventuated in the release of our own app, ExplorOz Traveller. We have built ExplorOz Traveller with cross-platform compatibility so when it was finally released in 2016, our customers could access EOTopo maps from any Android, iPad/iPhone, or Windows 10 provided it was running the app.

David and Michelle have a progressive, entrepreneurial approach to business, which has allowed their company to evolve and adapt to the changing needs of the market and to maintain existing customers as well as attract new customers.

The future of the company lies in the ongoing updates to the EOTopo mapset, the ExplorOz Traveller app, and our web-tracking service (ExplorOz Tracker). We have a new app ready to launch called ExplorOz Tracker (ETA January 2020), which is a simple app to allow management of multiple tracking devices. We also have a contract with a NSW Government Department for the development of an app for their customers.
