for tourism businesses and organizations

Project Description

A new regional data collection and analysis project has just been launched and Locali.t was mandated to help small tourism businesses within RTO10 (Ottawa & surrounding areas and Prescott-Russell) gather much needed and often missing data within the tourism sector. 


50 businesses will be selected to gather 2 months of data about their tourism business including:

  • Who visits my business?

  • Where are they from (how far did they travel)?

  • Where are they going?

  • How long are they staying?

  • Who/what are they visiting?

  • What language do they speak?

  • What are my business' affinity markets?

  • And so much more!


The best news yet? There are NO COSTS to your organization to participate in this pilot project. Locali.t reserves the right to select the businesses best suited for the project.

If you wish to gather data past the project dates, you may contact GroundLevel Insights and make arrangements with them directly. Service fees will apply.

About GroundLevel Insights

GroundLevel Insights specializes in looking at the world through human movement data.

What is Human Movement Data?

Human Movement Data is a powerful dataset that makes you an expert on a place, the people who visit it, and what they’re interested in. It’s real time and constantly updated so you can have insights on where consumers are visiting, shopping, dining and traveling–both today and tomorrow.

Human movement data is primarily gathered from smart devices—mobile phones, smartphone apps and other internet-connected devices from users that have explicitly opted in to sharing their location. It is the respected source for information on how people move, where they’re going, and why.

Be aware that the data gathered is limited to the visitors/tourist that enter your business with a mobile phone that allows location tracking (about 70-80% of the population does have traceable capacity). 

The data that will be generated respects all clauses of confidentiality and personal identification information will be given or even gathered as cellular data itself is anonymous. All data is fully compliant with PIPEDA, GCPR, CCPA and other data privacy protection laws.
