CITYDATA holds fresh, accurate, anonymized, crowdsourced mobility data for 1570 cities and metropolitan areas on a global scale.

With the changes in people-behaviors due to COVID-19, urban planners, transportation agencies, municipal leaders, and academic researchers are in need of a reliable baseline for measuring the variations in mobility patterns over time.

The Greater Barcelona metropolitan area also known as the Catalonia metropolitan region is the second most populous urban agglomeration in Spain. The metro stretches across 36 adjacent municipalities with a total land area of 12,368 square kilometers, hosting a total of 5.03 million inhabitants.  

CITYDATA curates daily mobility patterns for approximately 2.21 million devices or 44% of the population in the Greater Barcelona metro. September tends to be the preferred month for baselining mobility data. To that end, we have computed the mobility trip hops for the Greater Barcelona metro for the month of September.  The video at the below link shows the mobility patterns for 188,667 devices and 953,908 trip hops, visualized with a time series animation.
