"Mobility data company Coord is adding five new cities to its curb data platform: Austin, TX; Miami; Philadelphia; San Diego and Washington, DC," according to an article by Jason Plautz.

One of the cities added to the Coord platform, Washington, D.C. recently announced a new effort to manage commercial curb scape activity.

"To build out data for the new cities, Coord and its partners surveyed more than 500 miles of curb and cataloged 80,000 curb assets, including driveways, curb cuts, fire hydrants and signs," explains Plautz.

Coord announced the expansion with a blog post on its website. Coord was previously available in San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York, and Seattle. Despite the time and effort required to launch the platform in any given city, the company hopes to launch the platform in 100 global cities by 2021.
