Trusted insights on demand.

The Data Studio provides access to a world of big data powering evidence based design and decision making. 

the Place Intelligence Data Studio.

Access to the evidence you need to make design decisions with confidence.

The Place Intelligence Data Studio combines best practice place making and design with advanced data science and machine learning. It helps you understand the patterns of place through big data to provide a robust evidence base for better design and decision making.

Trusted by the worlds leading cities, design and engineering firms, the Place Intelligence Data Studio is empowering practitioners with the deep knowledge and accurate and timely data that is critical for responsive decision making in times of rapid change.

In years gone by, you would never design anything in the public realm without a site survey. In the public realm and city shaping design work for the future, I can’t see you starting any new project without this new Place Intelligence version of a survey – if you’re without it, you’re at risk of designing partially blind.

Layered data reveal insights that count.

Data as rich and dynamic as the places you’re working in.

A traditional site survey captures a moment in time, the Place Intelligence Data Studio is a web-based software platform where you can layer and customise years of historical and near real-time data to build a deep understanding of how a place functions over time.
