Solution Brief: Generate actionable business intelligence with raw location data

As a proxy for human mobility within the physical world, raw location data provides unparalleled insights into people’s behaviors and needs. Businesses harness such intelligence to boost performance while governments and non-profit organizations leverage it to execute people-centric development programs.   

However, the location data industry is teeming with issues (obscure supply chains, poor quality control, inflexible business practices, an abundance of non-compliant data, etc.). These factors make it extremely challenging for data scientists and analysts to generate actionable intelligence.

Creating attribute-rich contextual maps for Gojek with Geolancer (Case Study Preview)

The ride-hailing industry is characterized by stiff competition and new businesses are entering the fray every year. By 2026, the market size for ridesharing services is expected to more than double compared to 2021. For companies to thrive in this fiercely competitive landscape, they must optimize their routing systems to expedite pick-ups, match demand, and deliver more rides per driver for maximum profitability.  

Ridesharing services need accurate and up-to-date POI data to function. However, the underlying maps that enable their operations are outdated, and changes in the physical world are not reflected nearly as quickly as needed. A lack of current and contextual information can cost rideshare companies in terms of lost driver productivity, rider churn, and overall operational inefficiency.

How POI data helps property insurers improve risk assessment

In the insurance business, many decision-making processes hinge on location intelligence and real-world geospatial information.

Location intelligence is a powerful tool as it enables the creation and implementation of master plans that make cities more resilient and people-centric. In this article, we discuss how precise and comprehensive movement insights can help urban planners.
