What We Do

We Strive To Be The Source Of Truth About The Physical World

SafeGraph’s places dataset includes a breadth of information about physical places in the US & Canada. This includes core location information, spatial hierarchy metadata, place traffic data, and more.

Organizations use our data to help inform their people and machines to make better decisions for growth. You can preview and download data on SafeGraph's Shop site.

Why We Do It

Our Mission Is To Democratize Data

We strive to be the most trusted source to get data on a physical place and make it accessible for all. We're narrowly focused on being a data company with the best quality, coverage, and trust from our partners.

How We Do It

Process, Technology, Machine Learning, and People

The outcome is a clean dataset. But to accomplish that takes a lot of hard work. We hire smart people and use advanced engineering to ingest, draw, merge, classify, and verify the data. We deliver updated data to our clients on a weekly or monthly cadence.
