Using mobile phone data for Spatial Planning simulation and Optimization Technologies (SPOT)
We propose in this paper a methodology to find locations or
relocations of some Dakar region amenities (home, shop, work, leisure places), that may reduce travel time or travel distance. The proposed methodology mixes multi-agent simulation with combinatorial optimization techniques; that is individual agent strategies versus global optimization using Geographical Information System. We use MATSim as a multi-agent simulator system, and need for that to generate agent plans.
Some additional methods are thus proposed to generate representative agent plans from mobile phone data provided by Orange. Some preliminary numerical results are presented on the Dakar region showing the potential of the approach.
