Modeling individual human mobility patterns by travel purpose

Abstract : Understanding human mobility patterns and be able to reproduce them accurately is crucial in a wide range of applications in public health, transport and urban planning and anthropology. However, most of the studies and models proposed in the recent literature focus on long-term mobility, and, most importantly, the travel purpose and the importance given to it are rarely taken into account. Indeed, an individual is not willing to invest the same amount of time or money, more generally, the same amount of ”energy” into a travel according to the value attached to the purpose/objective of this travel. In this work, we test the assumption that it exists a relationship between the cost associated to a travel and the value given to its purpose by analyzing a credit card dataset contains information about 40 million bank card transactions made by customers of the Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria (BBVA) in the provinces of Madrid and Barcelona in 2011. We finally propose an individual human mobility patterns model which is able to explain and reproduce the properties observed in the data.
