Analyzing telco location data

Knowledge of where people live and work, as well as their daily movement throughout an area, are key inputs for addressing diverse needs in spatial planning, public administration or traffic management.

Traditional data from the national census are insufficient to capture the daily spatial dynamics of the population. At present, the work or private activities of the population are not so tied to one place as it was in the past, and the places of official permanent residence, place of actual residence and places of work are increasingly different from each other.

Room for new data

Population movement is becoming more diverse and irregular. People don’t always follow the same routine – to and from work. In this context, it is now possible to use accurate and reliable spatial mobility data from telecommunications providers that we at Instarea process to give better insights into how a city lives and breathes.

We’ve delivered various analyzes for state institutions, and our previous work is now available for download, including the methodology. For now the documents are in Slovak.
