    Keith-- awesome question.  Because I was just looking at the POI product, I'll say POI Brand name.  It's much harder to get that right than you'd think.

    Hi Keith - I agree with Dan (although my opinion is biased!).

    Standardizing the Brandname is quite a complex task due to the many naming variations and brand relationships/subsidiaries that exist (such as Hilton - DoubleTree etc.). We have recently upgraded our processing to use Natural Language Processing (NLP) - and we hope to see good improvements as a result.

    Great question, there are so many!!

    I like the attributes about a property...seeing previous sales prices, lot sizes, and more is cool to see!

    Personally I love consumer expenditure for canned ham. Or not canned ham if that's your preference. The amount of detail in the demographics data sets is amazing!

    When I worked on World Boundaries project I used to like to go through list of country names translated into 27 languages and learn some of them. Would you guess that "Storbritannia" is "United Kingdom" in Norwegian language?

    hi Keith - for me its the parcel fabric as it can be quite beautiful (I guess in a map-geek kind of way) to look at - especially in subdivisions in the USA with curving lines and everyone's property neatly and properly displayed...

    Great question Keith, it is cool to see some of the things people like most. For me it is the roads data. The immediate practicality of use and how visually pleasing a well themed road network looks puts it to the top of my list.

    Great discussion. I can't help but love the category level in our Geodmographics Psyte and CAMEO. Not just because I had a hand in building them but because I just like categorising places and making it easy for clients to understand the people that live in a place.

    I like Navigation data like StreetPro Nav and RouteFinder as it helps in solving several use cases like best optimized routes,iso crone, iso distance,travelling salesman problem,service area etc .

    My favorite data attribute would be latitude.     I love spatial data and nothing speaks of spatial data better than latitude and longitude.   Latitude, however, has an edge over longitude in my book because it implies northerly or southerly direction invoking a sense of change in climate.   Whereas longitude seems more political to me whether starting from the prime meridian in Greenwich, England , or crossing the International Date Line.    I just feel one has more latitude with latitude :-)

     Latitude

    @Chris Mabey that reminds me of a saying on a t-shirt I bought in Naples, FL while vacationing one winter - 'your latitude determines your attitude'... ​
