Soar History

Soar began its evolution in the Australian outback in 2012 after several high-profile mining companies requested the development of a mapping engine which could work on mobile devices, offline, and in remote locations.

After two years of research and development, Soar was adopted for defense and security applications and the technology underwent significant operational testing. The focus of this testing was to build a robust mapping platform that could handle any form of content and maintain key functionality on the blockchain.

In 2017, the technology behind Soar was released for civilian use with a focus on broader applications allowing Soar to start building the world’s first global super-map.
