The Places of Our Lives: Visiting Patterns and Automatic Labeling from Longitudinal Smartphone Data

  title={The Places of Our Lives: Visiting Patterns and Automatic Labeling from Longitudinal Smartphone Data},
  author={Trinh Minh Tri Do and Daniel Gatica-Perez},
  journal={IEEE Transactions on Mobile Computing},
The location tracking functionality of modern mobile devices provides unprecedented opportunity to the understanding of individual mobility in daily life. Instead of studying raw geographic coordinates, we are interested in understanding human mobility patterns based on sequences of place visits which encode, at a coarse resolution, most daily activities. This paper presents a study on place characterization in people's everyday life based on data recorded continuously by smartphones. First, we… CONTINUE READING
