We are excited to announce the launch of our new Seasonal/Hourly Explorer – Beta! This will allow our members to access the recently released hourly impression data before our new state-of-the-art Geopath Insights Suite of measurement tools launches in early 2018.
We are truly excited about this industry changing milestone, and look forward to the many more to come! As our members begin to work with this data, we have put together helpful answers to some frequently asked questions.
What is actually available?
Hourly impression data for an average day of the week for every month throughout the year are available for every piece of measured roadside inventory. Please note, this data is based on 2015 historical data and is for noncommercial use only.
Why is this data being released now?
The purpose of this release is to prepare our members for the launch of the full Geopath Insight Suite in early 2018. The data are supplemental to our existing product and help demonstrate the application of hourly impressions. Having access to this data now empowers our members to explore the capabilities of hourly audience and prepare for how their organizations will want to work with this resolution of information in the future when hourly composition data are available in 2018.
