Santa’s elves have been hard at work fixing some issues and adding a couple exciting new features. For example, the “Pre-defined Markets” tab has been added to the Mapping Centre. This lets you load up these markets on the map and compare them to your custom trade areas. We added the ability to save and load map layers and combinations, including Heat Map layers and POI Maps. This means you can save a map that has multiple trade areas, a Heat Map, and Points of Interest, and reload that map. […]
We presented and had a booth at the Data and AI Marketing conference. We co-presented with Outfront Media about finding and reaching specific audiences with a small budget, showing many data visualizations including heat maps, lift charts, and geo-fences. We also co-presented with Pat Pellegrini, the CEO of Vividata on cannabis usage. Vividata’s robust surveys show that social acceptability for Cannabis usage has not changed meaningfully since legalization. […]

Recommendation systems have been used for job sites and Facebook’s recommended friends system, but have primarily been used in ecommerce and news. This paper looks at recommender systems in healthcare. […]
We will be co-presenting two sessions on December 2, 2019. The first session is a case study featuring Digital Out of Home Programming (i.e. digital billboards), how a client was able to find and reach specific audiences, e.g. dog owners who spend $200+ a month on pet food and use plug-in air fresheners. They used the targeting module to find the best places and times to advertise. […]
We added the Cannabis data set and a few more from Vividata, including Alcohol, Household Products & Pets, and Real Estate & Home Improvement. This includes variables like frequency of vaping, source of cannabis, and attitudes towards growing cannabis. One of our core strengths is high quality, granular data. We have over 10,000 variables at the postal code level and are always looking to add more. The next release will see a few more data sets from Vividata loaded onto Polaris Intelligence. […]
