Happy New Year!

We hit the ground running with some additional enhancements in January.

Core Places and Brands

Enhancements

  • We've added additional brand parent-child mappings :family+: for many major hotel chains and their subsidiaries (let us know if we missed your personal favorite!). This caused our column fill rate for parent_safegraph_place_id to go up (https://docs.safegraph.com/docs/places-summary-statistics) :chart-with-upwards-trend+:
    For example InterContinental Hotels Group (SG_BRAND_70b1db807a0fc63d) is the parent company of multiple subsidiary brands, including InterContintinental Hotels & Resorts (SG_BRAND_d967f05785d000fd):
