Stroly is a creative map platform that allows users to experience and share the diverse stories of their favorite places. Anyone can upload (free) individualized and even disproportionate maps which then are overlayed with a GPS layer displaying a viewers location on the map while calculating the correct relative distances on the go. Furthermore, maps can be augmented with comments and links to increase and enhance the experience.
Initially part of ATR Creative the Stroly team then branched-out as individual startup with office in central Kyoto. The team regularly organizes community events with hands-on tutorials on how to use their map platform. Updates and event announcements can be found on their Facebook Page.
