MIT researchers have turned cell phone data into the Mobil Landscapes
project. Using anonymous data and maps of Graz, Austria, they created computer-generated images that show both the physical landscape and colorful representations of how much chatter is happening, and where. The data included density of cell phone calls, their origins and destinations, and the whereabouts of users.
The dynamic maps will be on display at the M-City Exhibition at the Kunsthaus Graz starting Oct. 1, 2005.
