Data for Social Good in Action

We believe in using location data to make our world a better place.

Unacast believes that location data should be used for social good. Location data and its derived datasets have the potential to fuel innovation within our communities and help people live healthier, more fulfilling lives. For select organizations whose missions align with these values, we provide access to location datasets at a nominal cost. Supported projects have benefitted communities both in the U.S. and overseas.

We know that understanding human movement patterns, and how they change over time is key to better stewardship. Location intelligence lets local governments make policy decisions based on data, not opinion.

It allows non-profit organizations and environmental groups to allocate scarce resources in the places where it is needed most. In times of crisis, location data can help prioritize outreach, deploy life-saving healthcare services, or direct the efforts of first responders. It can also help cities plan for the future – for skyrocketing growth, or a declining population – and inform critical infrastructure and redevelopment projects.

In short, location data can help to solve some of our society’s biggest challenges. Too often these problems are under-resourced; the great irony is that these are often the issues that most impact our everyday lives.
