Your key to unlocking the city's secrets

KOMPAS is your virtual best friend for discovering the unique places hidden all around you. We all remember the storybooks of our childhood, detailing the adventures of Alice, Dorothy and Phileas Fogg. Who didn’t want to jump into the story and explore the worlds within the pages?

When we grow up and start exploring the real world, that sense of adventure and excitement often disappears. We get lost in our everyday lives and free time can become more of a routine than an adventure. It’s time to put an end to that and bring back the excitement.

With KOMPAS, you’ll no longer have to spend hours online searching for that perfect place. We’ll show you hidden, unique, and independent gems, available at the tap of a finger. You can plan your day with itineraries based on your interests and location, designed to optimise your time and money. Basically, the only thing KOMPAS can’t do is fly you there on a magic carpet. But don’t worry, we’re working on that.

What makes us different?

Personalised Adventures

We combine machine learning with data to recommend locations that are perfectly tailored to your interests. Veggie? We’ve got you. Die-hard rock fan? We can point you to some of the best stores for your vinyl fix. Whatever your interests, our suggestions are personalised to you.

Handpicked Hidden Gems

Whether you’ve lived in the same neighbourhood your entire life or it’s your first time venturing outside the city centre, use the explore feature to discover amazing locations hidden just around the corner. Think you’ve seen it all? Download the app and you may just be surprised...

Bespoke Itineraries

Have a few hours to kill, or like to set out into the unknown with a plan? Simply let KOMPAS know your preferences and you’re ready to set sail. KOMPAS will create a personalised itinerary of recommendations that you can review and customise in real time.

The Secret Workings Behind KOMPAS

Well, we say ‘secret’, but really, we’re actually pretty open about how our app works. We gather and analyse data, and combine it with machine learning to tailor suggestions based on your tastes and interests. This lets us provide you with experiences which you’ll actually enjoy, rather than what the ‘average’ person is into. The more you use the app, the more relevant to you the recommendations will get. All those generic 'Top 10 Lists' are replaced with a real-time, living representation of your city, based on your style of exploring. Pretty clever, huh?
