The service helps marketers target customers by providing demographic data for a location specified by address or latitude and longitude. Geographic information about the location and lifestyle data about its inhabitants provide relevant input for marketing decisions. Other applications include matching login credentials to location to improve security and informing customers of nearby product dealers.
API methods support specification of a location by longitude and latitude or by ZIP code or specification of an IP address. The request can also specify filters for customer age groups and preference for output elements and format. Returned data include population breakdown by race, age, and household income category. Additional data about the location include business activity, terrain features, and crime statistics.
The following is a list of how-to and tutorial content that matched your search term. ProgrammableWeb's how-to content comes from two sources; full-blown tutorials that we publish ourselves and other highly relevant tutorials that we find elsewhere on the Web. This list represents on combination of both tutorial types and if you go to ProgrammableWeb's API University, you'll not only be able to find more, they are organized based on your role (API providers or developers who consumes APIs). If you know of a tutorial that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it. Be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
