Citi Logik Limited and Compass Informatics Limited join forces to develop advanced Location Analytics capability across the Island of Ireland.
While visiting Dublin as part of the UK Department for International Trade mission today, Citi Logik, the UK big data Location Insights company, which provides advanced mobile network data (MND) analytics from the 3/4G and emerging Internet of Things (IOT) connectivity grids, is pleased to announce a significant strategic partnership with Irish location technologies and analytics pace setter, Compass Informatics. This partnership will increase Citi Logik’s capabilities to understand the movement of people by vehicle, on foot and by public transport across the Island of Ireland using the existing 3/4G network infrastructure.
Announcing the deal Stephen Leece, MD Citi Logik said: “We have worked extensively with Compass Informatics over the last three years on major projects across the UK. We see the establishment of Citi Logik Ireland as the natural next step in our relationship. We are particularly pleased to bring the Citi Watch advanced real-time capabilities to Dublin and the prospect of developing world leading capability derived from the local 3/4/5G network across the Island of Ireland.”
Gearóid Ó Riain, MD Compass Informatics noted: “Our collaborative efforts working with anonymised network data for public good offers the potential to help reduce congestion, improve traffic flows and understand the impact of pollution. Compass Informatics is particularly excited to deepen our working relationship with Citi Logik to develop solutions relevant to Ireland, to other European cities and internationally.”
Citi Logik helped create the UK market for non-real time mobile network data (MND) analytics by undertaking assignments with the Welsh Government, London Heathrow, London Gatwick, Highways England, TfL and across local transport studies. These projects were a step change from legacy roadside surveys, expensive induction loop technologies and small sample datasets such as GPS, CCTV, Wi-Fi or Bluetooth counts. Although Citi Logik’s services can incorporate these sensors when an even broader picture is required. Last month Citi Logik launched ‘CitiWatch’, a global first-of-a-kind real-time MND platform capable of multi modal (vehicle, foot, public transport) analysis.
Dublin-based Compass Informatics combines GIS, information and location technologies, data and spatial analytics to create management solutions focused on natural resources, planning, environment, and transportation. The company provides high quality, professional data services and software platforms to the Irish, UK and global markets.
