Data science and spatial analysis for a cell phone company

Geographic patterns in cell phone calls

The project

We worked closely with the research team at a US cell phone carrier to conduct spatial and temporal analysis of call patterns and the relationship between patterns and landscape features.

Our role

We were brought on to help conduct spatial analysis on large datasets, conduct data visualization and develop machine learning models.

Features of the work

  • Computed details on landscape features near a large volume of cell phone call locations
  • Wrote reports featuring detailed data visualization
  • Developed statistical and machine learning models to evaluate the relationship between landscape features and cell phone calls
