Naming of Locana
The name Locana was chosen to bring together the roots Locus (a place: locality) and Ana (collection of information on a place) which represent our mission to help clients with everything location. Inspiration also came from variations of Locana dating back to ancient languages and have multiple meanings aligned with our purpose (world, earth, universe, seeing, knowing, and more).
