Location data overview

The places people go and their interests are intricately connected. As a result, location data can tell you a lot about the preferences of individuals and groups. For example, location data can provide insights to help with targeted advertising, investment decisions, and commercial real-estate planning. Wherever people go in the real world provides powerful signals that help data buyers and sellers understand where their customers are, who they are, and what they may want. And wherever you go, there you are.
