The aim of the project was to explore how big data can be better utilised to support territorial policy-making in European growth corridors.
Mobility Lab contributed to the project in case study 2, where the objective was to develop a methodology for producing an everyday mobility database which contains OD-matrices of movements between territorial communities. Developed OD-matrices are based on mobile positioning data, which contains locations of call activities in network cells. The resulting database would support mobility-related policy-making.
