IMO: Infotechnological Mobility Observatory

Infotechnological Mobility Observatory

The aim of the IMO is to build a data infrastructure for mobility studies that integrates emerging (mobile phones, sensors); traditional (individual level censuses, registers) and contextual (environment, traffic sensors, urban sensors etc) data sources.

The main role of the Mobility Lab is to develop and make available mobile positioning data:

  • passive mobile positioning data, and
  • smartphone application MobilityLog data.

In the course of the project, population statistics map application has been created on the bases of passive mobile positioning data, where can display population statistics and download as open data.
