A data scientist and ethnographer joined forces to build a software product called Spatial, which adds a first-of-its-kind human-driven social layer to your average rendering of cities, streets, highways lakes and rivers. Pulling from 31 public social media tools, Spatial’s patent-pending Illuminate technology lets users immediately visualize a city’s lifestyle landscape.
- Lifestyle decisions are increasingly driving real estate decisions.
- Spatial overlays heat maps of community and social activity curated from over 30 geo-tagged-capable social media platforms.
- The tool's data coverage extends to over 100 cities internationally. In the U.S., that includes Chicago, Houston, Austin, Denver, Los Angeles, Miami, San Francisco, New York, Washington, D.C., Baltimore and more.
