Will the `Patterns` data become unavailable soon?

Hi, just noticed a warning message on the SafeGraph webpage Patterns | SafeGraph Docs

Does this mean the Patterns data become unavailable soon? :hot_face:

Legacy Product

This page references SafeGraph Patterns, Weekly Patterns, and/or Neighborhood Patterns, legacy products that will no longer be available at the start of 2023. If you are interested in foot traffic data, please contact us and we can refer you to a mobility data partner.

@Yingjie_Li_MSU great question. We’re working on onboarding the new mobility provider that SafeGraph is transitioning their customers to, so we’ll still provide foot traffic data with the same attributes.

There might be a slight disruption of the delivery in January as we set up this new provider. We’ll make a wider announcement once we have more information.

It looks like the data is now officially unavailable, are there some release notes explaining why this happened and whether we will be able to obtain the data from another provider?

Thank you

Hi Jorge. Weekly, Monthly, and Neighborhood Patterns data is now available on the product from Advan. It does require a subscription to access the data.

Hi Evan, is it still possible you could resume my access to the Weekly, Monthly Patterns data? I was a PhD student at Michigan State and now a postdoc research at Stanford.

Hi @Yingjie_Li_MSU - we can no longer provide access to the SafeGraph Patterns data as they’ve discontinued producing and supporting it.

Advan now produces a new version of Weekly/Monthly Patterns which you can explore and see if it fits your use case. Same schema as before with a slightly different methodology: https://community.deweydata.io/t/safegraph-advan-methodology-differences/26163
