Learning from our movements – A roadmap towards mobility data analytics


From raw location recordings to mobility patterns - how can we exploit on the ubiquitous GPS technology in order to get knowledge about our movement behavior? Which are the most representative examples of mobility patterns that can be mined from humans’ mobility datasets? In this talk, issues and solutions on Mobility Data Analytics (MDA) are overviewed, including data acquisition, processing, and mining aspects. Current trends in MDA, such as semantic / holistic trajectory modelling and big mobility data management, are also presented. Use cases include land, sea, and air space movement.
