Data available through TernAPI

Standard Roofstreet Grid and Zones

We build anonymized statistics of population behaviour.

We group the behaviours and movement history by geographical zones linked to our hexagonal grid (precision to 50 meters).

Roofstreet standard grid

Home places, Work places and Leisure places are grouped by zones of about 500 to 2000 inhabitants (e.g. IRIS zones in France).

IRIS zones

These groupements ensure no personal data nor identifiable personal behaviour can be deducted from our data.

Using the API you can get portions of the grid including the Grid ID (GID) that may be used in other API calls.

  • Neighbours Grid : Get the Hexagons (GID and Geom) of the standard grid closest to coordinates

Flow count

The Flowcount services can be used to estimate the amount of pedestrians or motorized individuals at specified time scale.

  • Easy Flow Quality : Provide an indicator (from 1 to 5) of the amount of pedestrian flow in a specific hexagon of the grid. It also provide the distribution of the flow across weekdays and time slots, as well as proportions of wealth (soci professional) categories (in non absolute values).
  • Flow Count : Provide the number of pedestrians or motorized individuals estimated in a time slot at a specific Grid ID.
