Client: Home Improvement Retailer & Garden Centre UK and Irland
Subject: Detection of lost items
This client is one of the largest home improvement retailers & Garden Centre’s in the UK and Ireland that aim to bring more life into people’s homes and gardens.
The client requested a comprehensive analysis of its transported items within the United Kingdom and Ireland that were GPS tracked. Therein, they wanted to know where their items have been transported and mainly where there have been located in order to find those that deviated from their stores and where they finally ended up.
The dataset was provided by the client consisting of an unique device ID, timestamp, longitude and latitude. In addition, another dataset was provided of all their stores with addresses but without the longitude and latitude data. With this data the following steps were performed in accomplishing the requested goal:
The client was satisfied with the analysis and provided findings. Multiple lost items were mainly located outside of the UK and Ireland and some even far as Finland. Further, investigation was required from their side to bring all those divergent locations together and to identify what kind of locations those are in order to find their lost items.
