Data Appeal guest blogs for CARTO, the world’s leading Location Intelligence platform. Together, we leverage points of interest data, Sentiment scores and Popularity KPIs to evaluate to what extent the city of Berlin has changed post-Covid. Explore how Location Intelligence and big data analytics can be combined to measure and benchmark tourism trends and destination performance.

Are tourists avoiding historically crowded areas? Are travelers migrating into new neighborhoods and visiting lesser-known attractions?

By leveraging geospatial data, Sentiment Scores and the Popularity Index, we evaluated the German capital to assess if and how the most popular points of interest and neighborhoods have been impacted post-Covid.

To support this analysis, we conducted a complete mapping of 946,971 points of interest across greater Berlin including all shops, hotels, restaurants, attractions and transportation sites.

For each point of interest, access:

  • POI name, industry & category
  • Address, coordinates, opening hours
  • Sentiment Score (overall and by category)
  • Popularity Index
  • Facilities, amenities and more
  • Historic data from 2019 to present day
