The second typology of data consists in localized and aggregated tracks of anonymized mobile phone users. It is an origin-destination datum derived from the Call Detail Record database. The third type of data refers to the mobile switching centre (MSC), which is the primary service delivery node for GSM, responsible for routing voice calls and text messages. With the maps based on the processing of the three types of mobile phone data, it was possible to offer information on temporary populations and city usage patterns (daily/nightly practices, non-systematic mobility).
