AbstractThe paper illustrates basic methods of mobility data mining, designed to extract from the big mobility data the patterns of collective movement behavior, i.e., discover the subgroups of travelers characterized by a common purpose, profiles of individual movement activity, i.e., characterize the routine mobility of each traveler. We illustrate a number of concrete case studies where mobility data mining is put at work to create powerful analytical services for policy makers, businesses, public administrations, and individual citizens.
