2 – Data is being used for greater targeting & measurement precision.  In general, the utilization of data by the OOH industry is driving the shift from targeting as many people as possible to targeting as many members of specific audiences as possible.

3 – Mobile will be even more integrated as a data source and campaign vehicle.  Advertisers are building on this strength using cross-channel campaigns that span OOH placements and mobile ads, often tied to specific locations. The near-universal presence of smartphones is opening the door for tracking and measurement data.
