A brief history of Mergin Maps

Lutra Consulting Limited have been helping organisations adopt open source GIS for over ten years. We developed Mergin Maps to bring mobile, desktop and web GIS technologies closer together in a way that's easy to use.

2009
Lutra Consulting established
by Saber and Peter Wells. Many early projects were water-related including the release of the Crayfish plugin in 2012 which has since evolved to support time-varying mesh formats directly in QGIS.
2013
start of QGIS core development
as they were joined by long-time core QGIS developer Martin Dobias.
In 2014 Lutra launched their first QGIS Commercial Support packages providing bug-fixes for QGIS.
2017
saw first lightweight Android app
(known as Input) which allowed users to take their QGIS projects to the field. In 2021 Mergin Community Edition released as open source software. In 2022 Input and Mergin were merged to form Mergin Maps
