For requests, contact MAPIT directly

MAPIT is one of the leading analysts in relation to alleged paranormal photography, and visual and audio recordings, both analogue and digitally. Therefore we are able to offer in depth and thorough analysis to individual witnesses and other groups and organisations worldwide.

MAPIT receive many requests each year for analysis. Some people are convinced they've captured something paranormal, while others are simply curious about something "odd" that they've observed.
MAPIT have several members able to look at analysis requests, with knowledge of optics, lenses, digital technology and other technical means.

Most people appreciate having the possible cause of the anomalies explained. Some are convinced, though, that they have captured something paranormal even if there's a likely logical explanation for the phenomenon. They base their beliefs on corroborating evidence such as strange sounds, sights, psychic visions, or other experiences they had when the photograph was taken. In the our opinion, this is a legitimate position that must be considered. But the photo will still be labelled "indeterminate" in our system of classification. As you can imagine, we have large collections of photographs we are able to explain.

A full report will be returned with original copies of your analysed items. All images and recordings belong to the original witness or organisation, MAPIT will not use, show or offer further use without prior permission.
