SafeGraph Facts: Free, Detailed Statistics About Commercial Points of Interest and Consumer Foot-Traffic

November 11, 2019

Today, SafeGraph is excited to launch a new platform for making Places, Points of Interest (POI), and consumer foot-traffic data available to the world for free: SafeGraph Facts.

SafeGraph Places and Patterns are rich datasets covering 6MM Places POI in the US and Canada (focused on places where consumers can spend money). SafeGraph Places includes detailed metadata and geospatial data about each place, and SafeGraph Patterns features powerful aggregated foot-traffic data for over 3.6MM POI in the USA.

For SafeGraph Facts, we have brought together an extremely high fidelity archive on over 5,000 brands covering over 150 industries and 6 million places across the United States and Canada, derived from SafeGraph Places and Patterns.

SafeGraph Facts are aggregations and summaries of SafeGraph Places & Patterns, made easily discoverable and searchable.

Just a few of over 150 industries, 50 regions, 5000 brands, and 6 million POI covered by SafeGraph Facts.

The Source of Truth for Physical Places
SafeGraph is just a data company

That's it – that's all we do. We want to understand the physical world and power innovation through open access to geospatial data. We believe data should be an open platform, not a trade secret. Information should not be hoarded so that only a few can innovate.
