By leveraging one of the world's largest location platforms, billions of directly measured locations, and patent-pending statistical models, Placed is able to turn complex location data into actionable insights for our clients.

How it Works

Media partner delivers ad exposure.

We match to the 1st- & 3rd-party audience of 150+MM.

We determine the EXPOSED visit rate...

And the UNEXPOSED visit rate based on a 1:1 lookalike audience.

We calculate Lift from the difference in visit rate between the two groups...

...and calculate Return on Ad Spend based on the difference in sales.

Location Measurement

Placed is the leading provider of directly-measured location insights, analyzing billions of locations from its opt-in audience. Accurately measuring location is more than just data volume; it requires models, real-world context, and the ability to observe the complete path of consumer activity.

Data Clustering

By measuring location continuously, Placed observes when data signals shift from a single point to a cluster of points; identifying a visit has occurred.

Place Search

Once a visit is identified, Placed searches its database of hundreds of millions of business features to determine the likely place of the visit.


Placed understands that location accuracy is more than a latitude and longitude. Leveraging the intelligence from Data Clustering and Place Search, the Placed Inference Model applies a statistical probability to each and every visit, bringing the highest level of accuracy to consumer location insights. The Placed Inference Model is continuously trained against millions of first-hand validation points confirmed by panelists in the field.


Using industry best practices and proprietary modeling, Placed applies statistical weighting to its audience to project visitation behaviors for the entire U.S. population.
