ABOUT THE TALK

Neighborhood, location and space are at the crux of many decisions in life and business. Yet, gaining insights from geographic data is challenging because spatial relationships are not evident from a simple tabular representation. Iggy makes geographic data accessible and easy to use. We enrich data on US locations with relevant features describing the people and places embedded in the natural and built environment around them. We empower data scientists and machine learning practitioners to augment their datasets by addressing three key pain points: location data sourcing and cleaning, joining between levels of geographic granularity, and capturing surrounding details based on the way people actually experience places rather than simplistic, “as-the-crow-flies” approximations.
