State of the Internet Connectivity Visualization. Internet - Our World In Data. Measures of Human Mobility Using Mobile Phone Records Enhanced with GIS Data. Abstract In the past decade, large scale mobile phone data have become available for the study of human movement patterns.

Measures of Human Mobility Using Mobile Phone Records Enhanced with GIS Data

These data hold an immense promise for understanding human behavior on a vast scale, and with a precision and accuracy never before possible with censuses, surveys or other existing data collection techniques. There is already a significant body of literature that has made key inroads into understanding human mobility using this exciting new data source, and there have been several different measures of mobility used.

However, existing mobile phone based mobility measures are inconsistent, inaccurate, and confounded with social characteristics of local context. New measures would best be developed immediately as they will influence future studies of mobility using mobile phone data. White Papers. White Papers. How the Center for Public Integrity measured Internet inequality.

Selecting a cable on the map projection or from the submarine cable list provides access to the cable’s profile, including the cable’s name, ready-for-service (RFS) date, length, owners, website, and landing points. We added additional functionality to the map in September 2013, making it more comprehensive than ever. You can now: View a list of all cables connected to a specific country—enter “Connected to” and the country name in the search box (for example, “Connected to Australia”).

Google is warning that the Federal Communications Commission's net neutrality plan could have unintended consequences that help Internet service providers charge Web services for sending traffic.

Google warns FCC plan could help ISPs charge senders of Web traffic

FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler's plan would reclassify broadband providers as common carriers on two fronts, in the service they provide home Internet customers and their relationships with "edge providers," companies like Netflix that offer content to consumers over the Internet. Classifying the ISP-edge provider relationship is, in the FCC's way of thinking, supposed to provide additional authority so the commission can intervene when an edge provider claims it is being treated unfairly. But Google says that giving the ISP-edge provider relationships a new classification could actually make it easier for Internet providers to charge edge providers for the right to send traffic to consumers.
