Foot traffic data consists of spatial data (GIS), and is at the core of building intelligent strategies, transportation routes, processes and decision making in both public and private sectors.
What is it?

Foot traffic data associates people's movements with physical locations, and can be collected in different ways, such as WiFi signals, GPS from mobile devices and sensors, providing useful information for sectors like retail, real estate, agriculture, financial services, insurance, tourism, sports, entertainment, among others.

Regardless of the type of Foot traffic data chosen, incorporating it into an analysis gives a deeper insight into who is going where and when.
