Meet Placekey, the Universal Identifier for Physical Places

 Thursday, September 10

2:00 pm ET


Real answers to big problems come from combining data from many different sources. The biggest barrier to uncovering these valuable insights, the messy process of doing a join. Join this webinar to learn how Placekey will unlock geospatial data.

In this webinar you’ll get THE FIRST PUBLIC LOOK at Placekey. Placekey is a universal common identifier for any physical place, so that the data pertaining to those places can be shared across organizations easily. You’ll be introduced to the big idea behind this big initiative as well as the technical specs of the identifier and accompanying API. After this webinar you’ll be ready to start leveraging Placekey and invited to participate in the closed beta.
