India by 750

The finer you slice your data, the better you get to understand the Indian consumer. Forget 640 districts. Forget 6,000 sub-districts. Forget 19,000 pin codes. Forget 0.6 million villages. Here’s a mapping of India in 16 million pieces, each of 750 square metres—the size of a neighbourhood park. India by 750 combines real-time, high frequency datasets with legacy public data to enable organisations to take better micro-level decisions.
