What is Picket?

Data with Integrity

At X-Mode, we believe that great technology can help to build a better world.

That’s why we launched Picket, an initiative to bring the power of our location data to all people. By demystifying, de-siloing, and delivering high-quality, privacy-conscious location data to nonprofits, the Picket Initiative is helping to build a more equitable and sustainable future.


According to a study by the National Center for Charitable statistics, about 25% of the U.S. population volunteers. With over 25 million daily users currently on our platform, we can help you get more volunteers for charity.

A Wealth of Data

Our wealth of data includes over 1 billion total U.S. points, which gives the unique research capabilities you’re been searching for.

Use Case #1


Get the word out!

Stop wasting time in unfocused campaigns, and start putting your message in front of the right people. Reach out to donors, volunteers, and recruits with high quality location data.

Use Case #2


See how academics at UVA used X-Mode’s data to create a dispatch system for emergency vehicles during a natural disaster.

Professor Natasha Zhang Foutz at the University of Virginia, along with colleagues at UVA, Old Dominion University, and the College of William & Mary, teamed up with X-Mode and the city of Charlotte, North Carolina, to develop a smarter, more efficient way to dispatch ambulances during and after a disaster. The study by Professor Foutz et. al. is, to their knowledge, “the first work for ambulance dispatching under dynamic catastrophic conditions”.

Use Case #3

Event Insights

Better actions from better data.

Are you planning a march, rally, or conference? Use location data to find the best event site, get the word out, and measure your success. Let Picket be the bridge between a great idea and a successful action.

“I would recommend X-Mode over any of the other location SDKs. They’ve been very easy to work with, and unlike competitors, they won’t go behind my back and collect extra data that isn’t in the agreement.”
