Using geospatial data to advance sustainability in government and business

Big data is a powerful tool for tackling climate change – humanity’s greatest challenge in the 21st century. Geospatial data is a form of Big Data that is drastically improving mitigation/adaptation strategies for climate change and increasing the likelihood that we collectively accomplish the Sustainable Development Goals. By giving businesses and governments a firm understanding of evolving mobility patterns and spatial relationships, geospatial intelligence can decrease resource consumption, lower pollution and carbon emissions, enhance our resilience to climate-induced natural disasters, and more.  

Researchers, businesses, and government agencies leverage mobile location and Point-of-Interest (POI) data to advance sustainability. Let's look at some of these use cases.

How Quadrant prevents fraudulent records within location data supply chains

Good quality data is crucial for the operational efficiency of location-based businesses. Location-based analyses used in critical decision-making processes rely on the quality and accuracy of data powering them.

However, location data supply chains are characterized by a lack of transparency and authenticity, because data vendors prioritize volume over quality. To ensure that our customers make the most of their data purchase, we have made significant strides in identifying and erasing fraudulent data within our datasets. One way we achieve this is by examining our own data sources and constantly monitoring activity within our mobility and POI data feeds. We use data visualisation and proprietary AI models to spot instances of low-quality or fraudulent data and remove them before reaching customers.
