At StreetLight Data, we are transforming transportation, urban planning, and real estate with Big Data. Our analytics answer a deceptively simple question: Where do people go? This question is often impossible to answer with traditional research methods. But the answers are vital to building sustainable, livable, and successful communities.

Our technology transforms anonymous, archival location data from over 30 million mobile devices into useful Metrics that describe travel patterns. We are the first company to provide mobility analytics as a subscription service via an easy-to-use platform, StreetLight InSight®. StreetLight InSight informs high-value, long-term decisions that profoundly impact our everyday lives. We support projects such as subway line extensions, highway expansions, bike and pedestrian infrastructure, real estate property development, retail siting, and more.
