(TSXV:EQ) ("EQ Works" or "EQ"), a leader in geospatial data and artificial intelligence software that drives critical business outcomes for enterprises and agencies, is pleased to announce the launch of LOCUS Commute, a powerful tool that provides insightful data for the retail, insurance and advertising communities.
