Multiple Dwelling Units
A multiple-dwelling unit (MDU) is a real estate development or complex which houses a large number of people, such as apartments or condominium units. Telecom service providers are very interested in understanding where these buildings are located because it provides a large potential opportunity for new customers.
Additionally, telecom service providers would like to know where new MDUs are being built in relation to their network.
This can be a daunting task for any network planner, analyst, or data scientist. To properly do this, numerous data sets need to be cleaned, aggregated, and given an accurate location.
What Problems Can Building Footprints Solve?
