Commuting in Barcelona by Bestiario

Big Data techniques and data from over 300,000 cellphone users living in Barcelona, duly aggregated and anonymized, provided the basis for a new map of commuting patterns in the city. Specifically, the study uses data collected and processed by Movistar through its Smart Steps platform, following patterns of behaviour in order to identify and characterize the place of residence and main destination (work or study) of every user and map commuter flows among the 73 districts that make up the city.
