The Geography of Taste: Analyzing Cell-Phone Mobility and Social Events [chapter]

Francesco Calabrese, Francisco C. Pereira, Giusy Di Lorenzo, Liang Liu, Carlo Ratti
2010 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
This paper deals with the analysis of crowd mobility during special events. We analyze nearly 1 million cell-phone traces and associate their destinations with social events.  ...  We show that the origins of people attending an event are strongly correlated to the type of event, with implications in city management, since the knowledge of additive flows can be a critical information  ...  Acknowledgments go to Airsage for proving us with the data, and to Leonardo Soto, Daniele Quercia, Mauro Martino and Assaf Biderman for their general feedback.  ...
