Multi-perspective analysis of mobile phone call data records: A visual analytics approach
Analysis of human mobility is currently a hot research topic in data mining, geographic information science and visual analytics. While a wide variety of methods and tools are available, it is still hard to find recommendations for considering a data set systematically from multiple perspectives. To fill this gap, we demonstrate a workflow of a comprehensive analysis of a publicly available data set about mobile phone calls of a large population over a long time period. We pay special attention to the evaluation of data properties. We outline potential applications of the proposed methods.
