Citilabs Adds Foot Traffic Estimates for U.S. Locations

Also pressing ahead with data as a product is Citilabs, which has added hour-by-hour U.S. pedestrian traffic to its data on vehicles and mass transit. The data is sourced from mobile devices and estimates the paths of individuals but is, presumably, anonymized. If the U.S. adopts more stringent consent requirements– which it hasn’t – then firms like Citilabs may find it much harder to gather even anonymized information.
