The Land App

User-friendly tools for rural diversification

About Tim Hopkin

The Land App was founded in 2015 by Tim Hopkin in response to his frustrations with paper maps on his family’s farm. Relying on paper maps made it difficult and time-consuming to manage farm assets, share information, and plan future projects. The mapping software that did exist was expensive and complicated to use. And the necessary data was scattered across multiple different websites.

After working in the industry for several years, Tim realised that the cost of these problems were not small: the financial health of many UK farms and estates - and the future of our environment - was at risk.

With support from Ordnance Survey, Tim decided to build The Land App - a user-friendly, collaborative, online mapping platform. The Land App helps to save time, improve accuracy and make more informed decisions about how land should be used and managed.

There are many challenges facing farms and estates today. Not having the right data and tools to diversify a land-based business stifles growth and causes inefficiency, leading to missed revenue, poor long-term decision-making and excessive administration.

In this seminar we will demonstrate how our user-friendly collaborative mapping platform helps you work more efficiently with your team, agent and consultants to diversify your rural business.
