Events API for Location-Based Data

Access PredictHQ’s event intelligence for furthering your Location-Based Data

Events API for Location-Based Data

Multiple data streams in just one API

If you’re in the business of consumer-facing app development, chances are you’re pretty interested in location-based data. In fact, as the popularity of mobile and smartphone usage continues on an upward trajectory, the more interested businesses become in the power of location-based technology and communication. Whether the location of your consumer is being generated by their searching options or their device’s geo-location, you need technology that’s easy to use, inherently data-driven, creates value, and delivers intuitive functionality and content. And that’s where PredictHQ comes in.

PredictHQ’s API takes the hard work out of event data sourcing and cleansing, by doing it all for you. We collate and aggregate local, national and international events into one handy place, so you know what, where and when real world events are happening. If you can think of an event, you’ll find it at PredictHQ, including scheduled events like school holidays, public holidays, concerts, sporting fixtures, festivals and expos, right through to unscheduled events like airport delays, natural disasters, severe weather, even terror. Our ability to lock each event down to a specific location gives businesses all over the world the ability to discover events that could impact their supply and demand then display these in their applications. That’s not all, though. We’ve also created an intuitive ranking algorithm that tells you what events are more likely to impact your business compared to others, so you can see at a glance which ones you need to pay special attention to.

Ranked Events

Not sure what events matter most? Don’t worry - we’ve sorted them for you

Just like users on a smartphone looking for something cool to do this Friday night might search ‘events near me’, PredictHQ lets you discover millions of scheduled and unscheduled global events from more than 19 categories (and counting) that could impact your business. Our API lets you find relevant events with a simple REST call, so you can display them in your application, while our proprietary ranking algorithm assigns a numerical rank to every event so you can filter from most to least important. From there, create and update your apps with location-based data that is relevant to your users. For example, perhaps you have an app that enables customers to book flights, accommodation or taxi rides with you. Use our data to send push notifications to your customers about events that may have an impact on them, along with special offers or updates, all relative to their location.

Making Flat Event Data Intelligent

The ability to hone in on specific locations and discover smart data that has been enhanced and enriched by even smarter data is what sets us apart from other providers. PredictHQ pulls multiple data streams and third party APIs into one intuitive information source (we even manually collate data when we have to), so all the event information that could impact your business can be found in one handy place. Finding the data that matters to you is easy too. Discover events that are relevant to you by searching within a geographical radius, querying multiple categories and locations simultaneously, or looking up events and getting JSON responses. Integrating our data with any platform is simple thanks to our easy-to-use API. We also have Python and JavaScript SDKs available, and we use the OAuth 2.0 standard for authentication with access tokens required to grant application access to the tools available in the API. We make your developers’ lives easier too, because they don’t need to spend precious time capturing, cleaning and maintaining disparate data sources, plus our API is versioned for easier maintenance, reducing operational costs.
