SEATTLE, March 25, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SpaceCurve announced today that Via Informatics, the industry leader in crowd-sourced location analytics and developer of LocationGenius™, has selected SpaceCurve to be their spatial data platform. SpaceCurve is the first company to build a platform specifically for spatially organizing and enabling the analysis of large-scale spatial data.
"Using the SpaceCurve platform frees us from needing to solve the spatial data management problem and allows us to focus on what we do best, unlocking the value of our rich data sets for our clients," says Mossab Basir, Co-Founder and CEO of Via Informatics. "By providing the ability to geospatially index streaming data and query millions of records quickly, SpaceCurve provides us a cost-effective way to manage the diverse streams of data used in our analytics processes. We believe this solution is a game-changer for the industry."
Via Informatics did a detailed analysis of all technical alternatives on the market today and determined that SpaceCurve uniquely satisfies the very challenging requirements inherent with managing large scale, rapidly changing spatial data.
Via Informatics collects, processes and analyzes hundreds of millions of location events daily, from cellular, sensor and social networks. "SpaceCurve gives us the ability to fuse multiple streams of data at specific locations within a city and also enables us to run analytics on the data at very specific points of interest," concludes Basir.
"Via Informatics is setting an entirely new standard for location analytics," says Dane Coyer, CEO of SpaceCurve. "Spatially fusing real-time data feeds with historical data and providing the market with the most complete and current analysis possible is a significant leap over current market offerings."
