To enhance our Global Places offering, we are announcing three new APIs that will provide developers with powerful geointelligence tools and data designed to increase contextual relevance in today’s mobile world:
Discover everything that Factual knows about a location: you pass us a latitude and longitude, and we return additional attributes, called ‘pulses’, about that location. Pulses employ Factual’s network of signals, calculated metrics, and census data to give a unique purview of a given local point. We’re launching with:
Factual Commercial Density: Relative density of businesses near a location
Factual Commercial Profile: Types of businesses near a location
Demographics: Age, gender, race, median household income for a given location (US only)
We’ll be adding more over the coming months. Have a look at the demo and documentation to learn more. Pricing will depend on use case and usage volume.
Reverse Geocoder API
Convert a longitude and latitude into an address for the US and 49 other countries. More details.
World Geographies API
Learn the names and interrelationships between the world’s natural and administrative geographies – countries, cities, states, continents, regions, and time zones – enhancing the global 60 million businesses and landmarks we currently offer. You will be able to access ~6 million geographies and over 8 million place names in numerous languages. More details.
