Places data is available to download through a Foursquare-managed Amazon's Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) bucket as well as leading data marketplaces and geo-spatial platforms. Please refer to our Amazon S3 Guide to set up your access.
You will need to provide us with the ARN and email address(es) that should have access to the folder and that will receive notifications on delivery. Foursquare data files are provided in uncompressed, comma-separated or tab-delimited format and the standard filename convention is as follows:
If you would prefer a compressed file, compression is gzip format -- it can be opened with most Windows, Linux, and Mac compression utilities.
Listing syndicators should utilize the Foursquare API to read Places data they want to review.
At this time, the data will be incorporated in the next relevant data build, which currently happens weekly.
Due to the large amount of data Foursquare is ingesting, we do not send notifications when data goes live.
