Release Notes

June 2022

  • Census Block ID available and a core attribute for new customers.
  • The Website attribute for ~300k POIs in Italy redirected to the POI’s page on a popular digital business directory. We have blacklisted that site, and removed it from the corresponding POIs. This impacts ~30% of all POIs in Italy.

Glossary:

  • Total POI count - total number of POIs that we identify and track as a priority chain, i.e. all locations are grouped by an assigned ‘fsq_chain_id.’ Note that the number of chains we assign fsq_chain_ids to will continue to grow as we are constantly identifying, cleaning and tracking more each quarter.
  • POIs added in last 30 days - number of new POIs added in the last 30 days identified as a chain.
  • Validated in last 30 days - this is the number of POIs identified as a chain that have a date_refreshed value, which is the date when we last saw any single reference refreshed from crawl, Listing Syndicators, users or human validation for a given POI.
