Geolancer's edge: The importance of customisable POI datasets

Countless platforms are powered by Point-of-Interest (POI) datasets that are outdated. More importantly, these datasets are not even tailored to the unique requirements of different businesses. For instance, even though a restaurant represents one POI, a specialised search engine will need information on the dietary restrictions that are catered to by the establishment while a food delivery platform needs to know if it has a drive through – data that represents distinct, custom attributes.

Optimise your outdoor media strategy with mobile location data

Out-of-Home (OOH) advertising or outdoor media is integral to the multi-pronged marketing strategies adopted by consumer-facing businesses. Research has found that OOH drives more online activity per ad dollar spent than any other media. It is 382 percent more effective than TV, 200 percent more effective than print, and 63 percent more effective than radio ads in driving customers to an online platform. Outdoor media is instrumental for businesses to increase awareness of products and services - both online and offline. The market size is expected to reach US$ 33 Billion by 2027, exhibiting a CAGR of 13.41% during 2022-2027.

We reached a completeness level of 99.3%, far exceeding the industry standard.

Good quality POI data is critical for operational efficiency, especially in sectors like transportation, delivery of consumer services, supply chain logistics, freight, and many others.

However, existing off-the-shelf POI databases are plagued with issues. They are not updated frequently enough, and the way they are assembled -- most often through web scraping -- leads to inevitable inaccuracies.

Solution Brief: Building custom POI datasets with Geolancer

Point-of-Interest (POI) data is critical for executing operations in a host of industries. Even companies that do not directly rely on POI data utilise it for deriving actionable intelligence to improve performance.
