SafeGraph is making its aggregated foot traffic data available for free to help combat the spread of COVID-19. Data includes foot traffic on every commercial place in the U.S. and Canada and foot traffic within census block groups.
In this emergency SafeGraph is giving away the data (at no cost). They are currently working with over 80 academic groups, government agencies, and task forces. All are collaborating together, working around the clock, and are already saving many lives.
If your team is interested in building on top of SafeGraph’s location data, please send them the SafeGraph Data for Coronavirus Response form to get started or introduce them directly to email@example.com.
SafeGraph’s update from March 24, 2020, The Impact of Coronavirus (COVID-19) on Foot Traffic demonstrates how data can be useful.
