We Help Your When, Where And Why


Our Mission

LocationMind is a technology venture of Shibasaki laboratory of the University of Tokyo, which has been conducting research at the forefront of spatial information engineering and is also a group of engineers with a wide range of advanced technology sets related to location information. When, What, Why, and What should we do? We challenge the universal issues of various industries and institutions through location information.


People Flow Big-Data Processing

Good analysis always requires good data. We realize advanced and extensive analysis by performing multi-layered processing in the pre-data analysis process.

Analysis and Visualization of People Flow

Technology is also technology to express the results of data analysis in an easy-to-understand manner. Many of the requests we receive are analysis results, not data.

AI-based People Flow Prediction

In addition to analyzing past people flows, we have developed several unique AI models that specialize in human flow, and we are predicting the near future.

Security for Positioning Signals

Unlike the Internet, positioning signals are not being secured. We have developed a patented technology that secures the positioning signal itself so the output location information can be trusted.
