Hoodline Platform

Powering Local Discovery

The Hoodline platform lets people get neighborhood-level insights and relevant information, where and when it matters most to them.

We turn data into automated local content, and use machine learning to tag content from more than 200 media partners with exact location coordinates and 20 other unique classifiers across 100 topics and subtopics.

Our APIs make it easy for any app or site to integrate with our platform and select exactly the kinds of local information their users care about, contextualized and in real time.

We also analyze public and private data sets to predict how cities are working at the block level, helping enterprises understand the pulse of the world around them.

For Data Companies

New data sets are quickly becoming available about the world, generated from the products of companies large and small, and from public sources. But they’re siloed, and underexplored. We mine them to figure out the most interesting and important local stories:

News coverage

Have our professional editorial and data science team analyze your (anonymized) data and potentially generate compelling results.

Local distribution

Get our stories and analysis distributed alongside other professional news across our content platform.

Citation marketing

Receive journalistically appropriate source citations to your products within our articles, driving more awareness and traffic around your core products.

People are using sites and apps to live locally in new ways — which means they spend less time reading the paper, listening to the radio or watch local TV. Each piece of content is organized by location, sentiment and other classifiers across dozens of categories, then made available via our APIs for distribution across any app or site.
