Apart from the data points included in the location update, we collect number of other location data:

  • User visit - raw data about the places visited by the user, including every stop they make (even a traffic light stop).
  • User POIs - places of interest visited by the user. It includes the frequency of visits at certain places and the number of times they visit the place. The main difference between user visits and user POIs is that the first one is a raw data while the second is more structured and counts only the ‘actual’ POIs
  • Home/work location detection - detects the come and work address of the user. I needs to collect the data for at least 10 days.
