MapsAlive was launched in 2007 as the first web application to let anyone create interactive maps and floor plans. MapsAlive is owned and operated by AvantLogic Corporation of Southwest Harbor, Maine. AvantLogic was founded in 1999 as a software consulting company specializing in web applications, commercial grade software, and safety-critical computer systems.

Company founders George Soules and Janice Kenyon started their careers during the 1980s in the high tech industry of Massachusetts working for companies like Digital Equipment Corporation and Wang Labs. They moved to Vermont in 1990 to start Lexical Software and later became co-owners of Black & White Software before starting AvantLogic. In the fall of 2013, the company relocated from the heart of the Green Mountains in Vermont to the beautiful coast of Maine.
