This notebook provides a high-level comparison between foot traffic data from SafeGraph and Advan, Dewey’s new foot traffic data provider. It can serve as a jumping off point for researchers interested in understanding the differences between the two Patterns products.
Change the code and play with the data yourself to get acquainted with Advan! For information on methodological differences between Advan and SafeGraph, see this post.
As researchers work with Advan and best practices are developed further (w.r.t. normalization, conclusions, biases, etc), we plan to build more resources to enable our users. With that said, please share learnings, questions, and tools with a post in the Dewey Community or as a reply in this thread!
