KObata

Kobata was born in 2016 as an independent project of some geography and graphic design majoring students at the University of Costa Rica (UCR), all passionate about Geographic Information Systems and the conservation of protected areas in Costa Rica. Our common interest is to create a digital repository where you can manipulate dynamic and interactive maps on the web and picturesquely retract the natural wonders that are the protected areas in our country, Costa Rica.

Kobata is a cartographic, multidisciplinary and open audiovisual tool, Designed for persons interested in knowing or visiting National Parks or Wildlife Refuges of the country. The ease of handling web maps is the fundamental ingredient that gives validity and authenticity to our work; That is why we are given a huge responsibility to propose an attractive methodology in the use of this application. It is hoped that this innovative idea will be a powerful tool for many national and international tourists, which can positively impact the knowledge of people who consult this valuable work.

 Logo Designed for Kobata. For the indigenous Bri-Bris of Costa Rica the word Kobata means mountain, that was the main inspiration for this logo, besides that we took the cliffs of Cerro Chirripó, the highest point in the country as our second inspiration. Bringing it together is how this came to be our logo.
