Our Founder & CEO
BaseMap began when CEO and Founder, Jeff Balch, saw a need for a mapping app that offered more than just maps.
Jeff recognized that outdoor enthusiasts need the right tools to efficiently plan their adventures. He knew his fellow outdoorsmen and women would want an app that handled everything for them in one location. He began to look at the bigger picture and through hard work, dedication and many late nights, he created the first version of BaseMap.
From there BaseMap evolved and developed into what we now know as an innovative and technologically advanced mapping application that has changed the way we plan and navigate adventures. BaseMap is a multi-faceted tool for people who love the outdoors. Jeff’s hope for BaseMap is that it touches the lives of every outdoorsperson who needs a way to plan, stay safe in the outdoors and spend less time worrying about how to get back to where they started from. We are proud to bring every outdoor enthusiast the ability to relax and enjoy their time outside knowing that they hold the power of adventure in the palm of their hand.
