What is human movement data?

Human movement data is powerful data on people and places to understand visitation patterns, visitor origin, consumer profiles and more.

Human movement data starts with mobile location data, and is constantly being gathered from apps on smartphones in which users have opted into using location services. Azira is the world’s leading provider of human movement data, and ingests millions of these points of data every second. We then cleanse the data for only the highest quality observations, and combine it with other high quality data sets including census data, transactional data, geospatial data, and more. From all this we produce datasets specifically tailored to answer your industry’s most sought after questions like: 

  • Where are my visitors and customers coming from? What are their demographics and brand affinities?
  • What are the trade areas of my locations? How do they compare to my competitors’ locations?
  • How have the brand preferences of my visitors and customers changed in the past few months?
