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.
Have you ever wondered what is the busiest (most popular) day at Commercial Banks in the state of California? (The answer is Monday)
SafeGraph Facts brings insights about commercial points-of-interest to everyone on the web.
You are strongly encouraged to spend time exploring SafeGraph Facts. And let us know what you think!
Special shout out to talented SafeGrapher Sheldon Trotman for amazing work on SafeGraph Facts. Sheldon is Hacker In Residence @ SafeGraph.
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.
