Mobility patterns from mobile phone data

A continuous and total overview | 

When they are out and about, people use their smartphones to connect to a transmitter tower or find their location using GPS hundreds of times a day. These location details can be used to identify anonymous trip patterns that continuously track traffic and transport movements. Whether it’s about the origins and destinations of a particular target group, visitor numbers, or congestion maps, DAT.Mobility can offer a variety of web-based and other applications using this Big Data source.

National origin-destination matrices
Counting, measuring, and surveying coupled with transport modelling have for decades been the only way to identify and map trip patterns. With the national origin-destination matrix based on mobile telephone data, a lot more is now possible: 

  • Journeys per hour of the day;
  • 7 days a week, 365 days a year;
  • Trips to and from all zipcodes 4 areas in the Netherlands;
  • Converted into road traffic volumes and rail passengers.


Congestion maps and origin maps
If you want direct access to visitor numbers or the situation on the roads, we can offer you an online tool or a tailored service. We can provide conclusive information and visualisation of visitor numbers, visitor origins, journey times, and traffic congestion for any city, region, or event at any time of the year.
