Know a commercial Site and its urban Agglomeration?

With Codata Explorer, you can know the commercial organisation of any geographical area: site, cluster, city, urban agglomeration, province, region or country.

Sites such as "shopping centres", "train stations - airports", "retail parks" and "outlet centres" are moved to the right .
