The Population Mobility Monitor

The Mobility Lab of the University of Tartu, one of MARA’s partners, will develop a Population Mobility Monitor during the course of the project. This tool will be used for visualising mobility patterns and calculating mobility statistics from a variety of mobility data.

It will function as a dashboard by informing citizens, visitors and decision-makers about current mobility practices and their temporal variations in certain regions.

The tool will run on pre-processed origin-destination matrices of mobile phone data and will have an additional functionality to use structured datasets derived from traffic sensors, public transit cards, bike share systems, or similar. The tool is prepared for the spatial context of Estonia and Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, a state of Germany, and will be adaptable to other regions as an open code package.
