Abstract

In this work we present an analysis process that exploits mobile phone transaction (trajectory) data to infer a transport demand model for the territory under monitoring. In particular, long-term analysis of individual call traces are performed to reconstruct systematic movements, and to infer an origin-destination matrix. We will show a case study on Ivory Coast, with emphasis on its major urbanization Abidjan. The case study includes the exploitation of the inferred mobility demand model in the construction of a transport model that projects the demand onto the transportation network (obtained from open data), and thus allows an understanding of current and future infrastructure requirements of the country.
