Sitegeist - Ground Yourself with Data

Sitegeist is a mobile application that helps you to learn more about your surroundings in seconds. Drawing on publicly available information, the app presents solid data in a simple at-a-glance format to help you tap into the pulse of your location. From demographics about people and housing to the latest popular spots or weather, Sitegeist presents localized information visually so you can get back to enjoying the neighborhood. The application draws on free APIs such as the U.S. Census, Yelp! and others to showcase what’s possible with access to data.


Sitegeist is new iPhone and Android app that helps you learn about your surroundings with visually uplifting and stunning graphs and details. Drawing in localized information from the U.S. Census, Yelp, Foursquare, and weather information the app helps you learn about your neighborhood in regard to average age, climate or average income in certain areas.

Sitegeist is an amazing app. You can download it for free and then have it dish up infographics about the residents of whatever neighborhood you’re in. It also helps point you to fun destinations and, in the case of my boyfriend’s apartment, lets you know if you are within range of a contaminated site.
