Visitation Heatmap

Visitation Heatmap (2)The Visitation Heatmap shows visitor density within a location.

Having this unique bird's eye view helps you identify commonly visited areas within a property during a particular time period. This is great for retailers interested in managing merchandising and store experience, and also gives real estate professionals insight into well-performing tenants in shopping centers. 

 

Visitation Over Time

visitationovertime

The Visitation Over Time chart helps you understand upward or downward visitation trends.

This chart uses the most visited day of the time frame and uses that to plot out all other days' visitation, in relation to the most popular day. This metric is provided as an index value, not visitor counts. This chart can be used to study the effectiveness of a promotion, assess the health of a retail or restaurant location over time and more. Please note this report is only available for US locations a month at a time, so the time frame may not exactly match what you designate.
