Can Places Scout provide accurate data for international countries outside the US? What data is different outside the US?

Yes, Places Scout will provide accurate data for international countries outside the US and we now support 50+ countries (click here for a listed of offically supported countries). Places Scout will also use your country's respective Google server when gathering data.


Data Availability outside the US

Most of Places Scout's features and data is available in other countries. However, some data items may not return as many results in your country and these items may not be as accurate as it is in the US. The following is a list of items that may differ in other countries:

  • Business Owner Name data may not return as many entries
  • Facebook FanPage data may be less accurate
  • Less emails might be returned
  • No support for checking international domains (i.e. except for Canadian domains (.ca extension).
  • No map polygon data is available outside the US due to the lack of availability of geo-spatial location data outside the US. Instead of drawing polygons, it will draw a square box around each location instead.
    • NOTE: If you know where to find geo-spatial location polygon boundary data for your country, please open a support ticket and let us know how we can download the data. If we can find the data, we can add support for map polygons in your country.

Other than that the everything else should work fine in your country.
