What is Location-Based Data?

First, an explanation of exactly what location-based data is and why it’s important. Also known as ‘location intelligence,’ location-based data displays information layered onto a map. It shows how various points of information spatially relate to each other, helping to support analysis and decision making.

Maps bring information to life, allowing you to understand information and relationships geographically, and uncover valuable insights.

How Location-Based Data Helps You When Doing Business in Mexico

Growing any business involves risk and reward. Risk increases when expanding into a new market. Foreign competition in Mexico is growing as more businesses recognize the advantages of doing business there. This means you need to identify the best opportunities quickly and act on them as soon as possible. Making effective decisions begins with leveraging accurate location-based data.

Once you’ve evaluated your needs, you need to do research and analysis to support your objectives. Location-based data allows you to get very familiar with target geographies or industries, helping you to find the most cost-effective dataset.

For example, if you’re looking for people and companies you want to do business with, here’s a summary of the data fields available:

  • Industry Sector
  • Major SIC Category (2 Digit)
  • Sub SIC Category (4 Digit)
  • Product or Service Description
  • Company Name, Address, Colonia, City, State, Zip/Postal Code

Also, our location-based data can be delivered as a complete dataset or as a subset. Here are our most popular subsets:

  • Point of Interest (POI) Dataset
  • Mexico Manufacturers Dataset
  • Mexico Email Dataset
  • Mexico Importers and Exporters Dataset
  • Mexico Wholesalers & Distributors Dataset
  • Mexico Retailers Dataset
  • Mexico Head Office Dataset

Additionally, if you need a subset of businesses located near an airport or other transportation hubs, contact us. If you need a subset of businesses located near a particular distribution center or closer to an agricultural area, all of this information is easier to see and understand when it’s on a map.
