Analyses of Mobile Positioning Data
Progress in the field of information sources, their digitization, visualization and analytical data extraction makes possible to enhance data about society behavior, demographic characteristics, etc. Mobile devices apart from their main purpose to support and provide various applications to their users also in parallel generate a big amount of signaling data that reflect the devices’ usage and movement in a network. Due to high penetration and massive usage of mobile devices, these devices become then a unique source of information describing the behavior of users in space and in time. Positioning data allows data owners (mobile operates) to develop and to provide new innovative services that can be used in decision-making processes. In this talk, we will discuss how mobile users can be classified and mapped into an area of interest based on mobile positioning data. Furthermore, a utilization of such data to detect people traveling in public transport like busses and trains, and to determine where people get on and get off will be outlined.
