Quadkey Framework for Custom Location Insights

Built on Quadkey technology, the Mastercard Geographic Insights solution now provides expanded options and functionality for users. Quadkeys, which are a new grid identification methodology, allow geospatial platforms to pinpoint locations at any spatial scale without the use of latitudinal and longitudinal coordinates.

By integrating Quadkeys, a user’s view into retail insights is expanded to enable custom areas without pre-defined boundaries in addition to the distinct units previously used (such as block group, county, zip code).

Greater Consistency with New Spend Index

In this latest version of Mastercard Geographic Insights, spend details have advanced from a ranking system to a new Spend Index, providing greater clarity of spending patterns and improved insights over time. Along with these additions, new metrics have been added to Mastercard Geographic Insights to continue to provide granular insights into spend patterns. These include:

  • Total Accounts Index
  • Average Spend per Account Index
  • Average Frequency (transaction count) per Account Index

The new Spend Index now includes more options for analyzing data over specific time ranges. Instead of viewing scores by month, indexes can now be explored by the month, week, even the day. And, with added functionality to create comparisons between distinct time ranges, the Mastercard Geographic Insights solution will now make understanding sales and retail growth simpler and more precise than before.

A Clearer Understanding with New Categories and Boosted Filtering

In addition to the above improvements that make Mastercard Geographic Insights an even more powerful solution for granular data exploration and comparative analysis, this latest version incorporates new industry categories for greater detail and segmentation. Categories that broaden the appeal of Mastercard Geographic Insights to analysts across dozens of industries, including:

  • Accommodations
  • Automotive/Fuel
  • Grocery and Food Stores

This data can be further segmented by international and domestic spend, providing another level of detail into the behaviors of customers and prospective customers.
