Analysis of Mobility Patterns during a Large Social Event

EasyChair Preprint no. 394

5 pagesDate: August 3, 2018


The cellular networks including the millions of mobile devices generate a huge volume (mobile phone call records) of data by which the movements of people could be sensed. In this paper, a method (based on mobile phone call records) applied to characterize the patterns of urban population during a big social event is underlined. The proposed method is also to show the regions in the city where the similar trend of mobility takes place. This paper demonstrates the applicability of the approach on the data provided by a Hungarian mobile network operator during a public demonstration event. The results obtained can be helpful in understanding the structure of the city in the sense of human mobility related to large-scale events.
