A Comparative Evaluation of Urban Fabric Detection Techniques Based on Mobile Traffic Data

Abstract

Mobile traffic data has been recently used to characterize the urban environment in terms of urban fabric profiles. While showing promising results, the existing urban fabric detection solutions are built without a clear understanding of the detection process chain. In this paper, we distinguish and analyze the different steps common to all urban profiling techniques. By evaluating the impact of each step of the process, we are able to propose a new solution that outperforms the state of the art techniques. Our approach uses the weekly periodicity of human activities, as well as a median-based filtering technique, resulting in a better clustering in terms of both coverage and entropy, as shown by results obtained on two large scale mobile traffic datasets covering the urban areas of Milan and Turin, in Italy.
