Space Mapper new release with new functionality now available
* A mobile phone application developed by researchers at CEAB-CSIC ((MovE Lab, www.ceab.csic.es/~fbartu)) and Princeton University (www.princeton.edu) collects data on human mobility, while allowing users to map their own home ranges or “activity-spaces.”

* Space Mapper provides new human mobility data for a study that lies at the intersection of ecology and the social sciences. The study relies on techniques from spatial ecology and spatial demography to help us better understand the ecology of human movement and social segregation in our communities.

What does your world look like? What are the contours of your neighborhood? In our daily activities, most of us move through only small areas of the cities or towns we call home. These areas — which geographers and spatial demographers call “activity spaces” — may vary substantially and overlap little, even within the same community. They are important because where we spend time determines our access to resources, like medical care and fresh food, and our exposure to hazards, like toxic chemicals, contagious diseases, and crime.

If we knew more about systematic variation in human activity spaces, we could understand more about important social processes that affect our lives and drive inequality. But we do not have a lot of data linking daily human movement patterns to demographic and ecological characteristics. The Space Mapper application bridges this gap by letting users respond to a detailed demographic survey and then track themselves through the environment as they go about their lives.

Space Mapper records users’ locations at regularly intervals and securely sends this information to a research server. It is designed to minimize battery consumption and run continously in the background on Android phones. Space Mapper also allows users to map their own data on their phones, and it will give them additional data analysis tools in future updates.

If you have an Android phone, you can download and install Space Mapper from Google Play at <https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=edu.princeton.jrpalmer.asm>.
