Foursquare of today
Built on places and movement
It all starts with the data – and ours is unmatched in quality and depth. We combine the rich attributes of 120M+ global points-of-interest with the understanding of human movement from over 500 million devices, grounded in persistent first party data. Our core technology is the engine between those data set – it accurately and reliably detects real-world visits, and it continues to learn more about movement through billions of human confirmations. Its methods are the first to be accredited by the Media Rating Council. This foundation powers all of our solutions – those that exist today and those we have yet to build.
Foursquare of tomorrow
What if…a city could be as personalized and interactive as your favorite website?
What if…location intelligence flowed seamlessly throughout your ecosystem, optimizing every decision?
What if…augmented reality wasn’t just a layer on top of the real world, but informed and improved by it?
