Looking for a simple way to feed your applications with small area geographic data? AGS’ API, Snapshot, makes it easy to get just the data you need at a cost that you can afford. Snapshot is the perfect back end for applications that need accurate and comprehensive demographics, through a simple interface that provides access to our complete library of over 35,000 variables. Geographic areas include radius, drive time, and predefined areas such as ZIP codes.  Or feed a thematic mapping application by giving the map window extents, the level of geography, and the variable to be mapped.

Choose from over thirty pre-defined report templates or design your own templates that have the exact variables you or your users need. More information on the templates can be found here.

Snapshot data is updated twice a year, ensuring you have the most accurate data available. Choose from the broadest range of current year estimates, or from any of our premium databases including CrimeRisk, Health Care, Retail Potential and Gap, Panorama, and MRI behavioral attributes.

Complete Flexibility

Site reports should contain only the data you need, not what your vendor has decided they want you to pay for. Snapshot report templates are completely customizable. Create your own variables using an advanced function library that even allows you to compute estimates for your regression equations. Add entire tabulations with a single click.

Create reports with as few as one variable, or as many as a thousand. Determined by your needs, and priced accordingly.

Snapshot supports both annual subscription models and pay-as-you-go plans, at prices you can truly afford.

Innovative Features

Snapshot reinvents the site report by adding features never available until now:

  • Allowing you to compare your site with the universe of possible sites across the country, expressed either as percentiles or as standard scores
  • Context sensitive trade area sizing allowing trade area size to be determined by the local density, so field personnel automatically get trade area reports based on the correct size for your models
  • A wide range of functions available for computing variables the way you need them, ensuring that site reports are fully usable without additional processes. More on these functions can be found here.
  • Distance adjusted trade areas that account for the distribution of any variable within a trade area by using inverse distance weighting bands
  • Working with our Panorama geo-demographic segmentation just got easier! Three new features are available in Snapshot that enhance customer address or mobile location files. More on this feature can be found here.
