Here is a short overview over IILLC' products
IILLC' business address and POI data is a comprehensive, accurate, up-to-date and extremely rich source for POI data in +30 markets worldwide. It is the result of a unique combination of several web-extraction approaches that make it unrivaled in depth and freshness. It consists of the following three segments:
This segment is comprised of records extracted from business homepages. Through a proprietary crawling process of locating business homepages, a constant feed of new businesses are added to the DB. IILLC also offers homepage appending services to clients' databases that have little or no website information for their business listings.
Content extraction is conducted through rule-based information extraction systems. Repeated automated and manual (sample-based and frequency-based) quality checks ensure high quality data extraction.
All records have a URL, business name, address and telephone number. All records are also classified to IILLC's own category system, which is mappable to common category systems such as SIC or NAICS.
and extractions are conducted each month. Quicker update intervals
This segment contains many additional rich content fields per business record. We extract a variety of additional fields from our own URLs or URLs provided to us. Some of the additional fields that we are able to extract are as follows (the percentages represent the portion of our database that contains this field):
Many other general and category-specific fields (such as smoking policy, wheelchair accessibility or restaurant menus) are available or can be developed upon request.
Finally, a third segment of the IILLC POI database is built up by harvesting large chain websites (e.g. franchise operations or retail chains – normally this addresses the top 50-200 chains per country). This covers for example: supermarkets, restaurant chains, and gas stations, where information on individual locations is only available by querying web forms. Typically, these chain locations contain details such as opening hours, parking availability, and/or payment methods accepted.
Chain extractions are conducted each month. Quicker update intervals are possible.
