Overview


Aculytics GeoBI Toolkit allows customers to acquire and enrich data as it relates to geographic relevance and context. Greatly improving the value that can be derived from basic location data such as raw customer address data. Improving an organizations ability to use their data to form comparisons, identify trends, measure performance, and gain insights related to how geography and location-based trends impact the business.

Features & Benefits


  • Simple – Make geocoding as well as acquiring and enriching data simple to implement, maintain, and use. Providing a standardized single source for spatial data.
  • Low Cost – No programming required to implement and can be deployed quickly. The toolkit handles all communications and data management for multiple online APIs and data vendors. Additionally, Aculytics reseller and OEM agreements with the online API providers and data vendors allows for access to these services at a fraction of the cost.
  • High Value – Answer questions for the business and monitor trends where you previously lacked the necessary data. Automates time consuming and tedious tasks. Creates a tool-agnostic data source that can be leveraged by multiple systems across the enterprise.

More Details


The toolkit is made up of several components each with optional features that can be configured to meet your business needs and budget.

  • The local GeoBI Spatial Data Warehouse (SDW) which stores data inputs and outputs relevant to the GeoBI Toolkit as well as some configuration for automated task such as POI searches, isochrone generation, and spatial cross-references between various tables in the SDW.
  • At the core of the GeoBI Toolkit is a powerful software application that acts as an automated interface between multiple online APIs that offer spatial data and the local GeoBI Spatial Data Warehouse (SDW). It's this software that performs a task such as address geocoding, isochrone generation (drive time radius), Point-of-Interest (competitor location) searches, and Spatial cross-referencing.
  • A set of standardized spatial tables (map layers) for the United States including State, County, and Zip \ Postal Code layers in full detail, simplified, and center-point variations. Census tract, block group, and block map layers are also available for the USA. Additionally, Countries of the world, as well as United Nations Admin Levels 2 & 3 are also available.
  • Base demographics (US Census data) included as a set of independent tables representing the raw demographic data as well as a set of additional fields enriching the standard USA map layers with aggregated demographics.

Capabilities include:

  • Geocoding of address data into latitude and longitude coordinates and reverse geocoding of coordinates into street addresses
  • Generation of isochrones which are calculated areas that are reachable from a central point in a given amount of time or distance
  • Generation of distance matrices containing both driving time and distance measures between two list of points (coordinates)
  • Spatial Joins to detect the intersection, inclusion, or overlap of two areas or an area and one or more points
  • Point-of-Interest (POI) searches which can be used to find locations and businesses near other locations, which can be used to find potential customers and/or other types of businesses
  • Data mining of multiple types of risk data including crime, fire, and flood risk metrics
  • Data mining of various demographic metrics and market trends
  • Detailed property record lookups with information on property values, mortgages, and buildings
