Coscia M., Rinzivillo S., Giannotti F., Pedreschi D. Optimal spatial resolution for the analysis of human mobility. In: ASONAM 2012 - IEEE/ACM International Conference on Advances in Social Networks Analysis and Mining (Instanbul, Turkey, 26-29 August 2012). Proceedings, pp. 248 - 252. IEEE, 2012.
The availability of massive network and mobility data from diverse domains has fostered the analysis of human be- haviors and interactions. This data availability leads to challenges in the knowledge discovery community. Several different analyses have been performed on the traces of human trajectories, such as understanding the real borders of human mobility or mining social interactions derived from mobility and viceversa. However, the data quality of the digital traces of human mobility has a dramatic impact over the knowledge that it is possible to mine, and this issue has not been thoroughly tackled so far in literature. In this paper, we mine and analyze with complex network techniques a large dataset of human trajectories, a GPS dataset from more than 150k vehicles in Italy. We build a multiresolution grid and we map the trajectories with several complex networks, by connecting the different areas of our region of interest. Then we analyze the structural properties of these networks and the quality of the borders it is possible to infer from them. The result is a significant advancement in our understanding of the data transformation process that is needed to connect mobility with social network analysis and mining.
