How to examine human mobilities in practice?

In the newly published (18 August 2020) „Handbook of Research Methods and Applications for Mobilities“  has a chapter „Tracing human mobilities through mobile phones“ by Siiri Silm, Olle Järv and Anu Masso that summarizes the experience with mobile phone positioning data and its application in human mobility research.

The chapter describes the mobile positioning approach (tracking locations of mobile phones through time and physical space) to examine the spatio-temporal mobility of people and population dynamics to better manage and plan more sustainable societies. It gives an overview of three different types of mobile positioning methods: passive, active and smartphone-based mobile positioning.
