WHY?

Investor atlas empowers investors and business owners, by letting them support their big decisions with big data.

WHAT?

Users can let different sources of data interact with each other, giving them a complete view on different locations, adjusted to their specific needs.

HOW?

  1. Extract. From each dataset, investor information is extracted.
  2. Combine. Information from each dataset has its own geographical form. An algorithm converts any location information, be it coordinates, different sized squares, or many sided polygons, to a grid system with squares of equal sizes.
  3. Visualize. Once each square is connected to each dataset, we can build an application to let users discover and compare locations.

TECHNOLOGY

Raw data is uploaded to Google Cloud Storage, where Google Cloud Dataflow handles the processing. We only have to write the correct algorithms. No worries about infrastructure, it scales automatically. Output data is connected to Tableau for interactive visualization. Everything happens in the cloud. New data can be added and processed automatically.

IMPACT

In a world where data is ever growing, our task as data scientists is to enable humans to access the hidden secrets in the data. Giving investors and businesses a unique view on the locations that they are operating in, will help them drive their success and increase their profitability. Next to economic efficiency (right place for the right business), the dashboard is also useful for urban planning (how much people stay in a park for how long), mobility planning (which home-work routes need a new bus line) and advertisement (who will see a billboard).
