FlowKit: An open-source toolkit for mobile phone data analysis

Call detail records (CDR) are metadata records produced from mobile network traffic. CDR data provide approximate geospatial trajectories of phone users over time, which can be an invaluable data source for mobility analysis in humanitarian and development contexts. This session will introduce FlowKit, an open-source toolkit developed by Flowminder for analyzing CDR data in humanitarian and development contexts. FlowKit provides tools for ingesting and processing CDR data, and for controlling access to anonymised outputs, while protecting data subjects’ privacy. The session will include a demonstration of using FlowKit as an analyst in a crisis response scenario.
