Placekey, a universal standard identifier for physical locations, is now available through ThinkData Works
TORONTO, ON - March 10th, 2021 — ThinkData Works, Inc. (ThinkData), a data catalog provider, has entered into a strategic partnership with Placekey. Through this partnership, users of the Namara platform will be able to add Placekey as an enrichment layer to any geospatial dataset in their data catalog.
Placekey provides a unique way of illuminating both the descriptive element of a place, as well as its geospatial position in the physical world through a single identifier. In 2020, Placekey was launched using geospatial data from SafeGraph and 500 other organizations. With Placekey’s universal standard identifier, the data pertaining to any physical place can be easily shared amongst an organization.
"The utility of Placekey's universal identifier is that it allows you to easily combine disparate datasets about places, without the data wrangling that would have been required before," says Karissa Paddie, Vice President of Corporate Strategy at SafeGraph, a founding partner of Placekey.
Drew Doherty, Director of Partnerships for ThinkData says, “being able to merge and correlate geospatial data from different sources is a huge value-add. By giving our users the opportunity to enrich their data with Placekey, we’re helping organizations spend less time preparing data for use and more time turning that data into insight.”
Placekey’s common identifier can match points for any physical space. Seamlessly joined geospatial data can be harnessed from various different sources to draw boundless insights, while enabling data sharing and innovative data analysis at any organization.
