Two-way map sharing with friends & family. Base Tagger lets you tag your location, then keep or share with friends.
About this project
Base Tagger was born out of a need for help remembering locations. Once on holiday, the car got lost for well over 15 minutes amongst a sea of others. This threw up panic, and with small children in tow, was not an ideal situation.
As the children started to get older, and we began worrying about where they were. We thought that this App would be great to enable them to tell us where they were by simply tagging their location.
As a parent of a child with Type-1 diabetes, this App will bring peace of mind as teenagers who have more freedom can check-in with mum and dad to let you know where they are and how they are doing.
As an OCR runner, and someone who enjoys the outdoors, I can meet friends at a specified meet-up place, regardless of having a map or anything. And, if we run a long distance, the App will always tell us which way is home.
When meeting friends at a festival, we are now easily able to find each other amongst the sea of people by creating a base tag.
When on holiday and unsure of the area, you pass a place of interest and think I must go back. Now you can tag that place and keep it for later.
All of these scenarios led us to develop Base Tagger. And with it, you can share your tags with friends and family whenever, wherever you all are.
For example, you park your car at the Airport, you tag its location and you save this onto your mobile device. On your return, you then use the App to quickly locate where you left your car. Simple!
It’s all password protected so no worries about someone else finding it. And anyway, if you loose your phone, you can access your account on-line from anywhere and delete your tags at any time.
Have you ever:
- Lost your car when you got back from a holiday?
- Taken ages to locate your friends at a festival?
- Wondered where your children are playing?
- Arranged to meet someone in a busy setting?
- Gone exploring but not sure of the way back?
- Wanted to re-visit a point of interest, but can’t remember where that was?
- Worried about a child’s location with a medical condition?
If you have answered ‘yes’ to one of these questions, Base Tagger is for you.
The possibilities are endless as to what you can do with Base Tagger.
It has many more real-word applications including knowing where your children are by checking in and tagging their location.
Great also for keeping track of family with health issues to know where they are without the need to call you.
The App lets you create groups and send messages to members too.
We do hope that you will join us on this journey of ours and help make this project a realisation.

Risks and challenges
First of all, we are going to be developing the App for the iPhone. After a successful launch, we will then be seeking to build specific versions for other mobile devices as well as iWatch.
We will need to make sure that this works in rural as well as city-based locations and is secure at every level.
