A new cartography of commuting in Barcelona
Based on Big Data techniques and the data collected from over 300.000 mobile phone users residing in Barcelona, we created a new cartography of the city´s commuting. The study uses the data collected and processed by Movistar through their Smart Steps platform that, by following behavior patterns, is able to identify and characterize the place of residence and main destination (work place, education) of each user, as well as the different itineraries between the 73 neighborhoods that form the city.
The result of this project is a new cartography of mobility in Barcelona that includes more than 150 maps of the city and each one of its neighborhoods.
