Floating Population Data

The location information big data which acquired from the smart phone app

This product got position information log from domestic and overseas with GPS, generate two kinds of floating population data

Among users of the application for our smart phones, we acquire GPS location information at home and abroad from a user with access permission. We provide two types; 1."Point-type floating population data" which can grasp GPS data in detail as "moving point" and you grasp the flow and trend of people. 2.You can grasp "Mesh type floating population data" that can convert application users to the total population size in Japan, the transition by the time period. You can utilize the data in various fields, area marketing of commercial facilities, the local authority of the economy and tourism policies and disaster prevention measures.

The town planning map of "RESAS" the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry, which has been developed for the realization of the regional revitalization, our flow population data are adopted. We receive a highly evaluated by the precision and utility to understand the movement of the person directly in data.

Provided by RESAS: Cabinet Secretariat (Headquarter for Overcoming Populatiton Decline and Vitalizing Local Economy in Japan) and Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry

Application example

Dear ASAHI ORIKOMI OSAKA CO., LTD.

Point type floating population data

Good point

  • Grasp of the movements and flows of people such as departure points, path or staying time
  • Acquire position information from multiple carriers

It fine grasp the movement of people from information such as latitude, longitude, time, speed and direction, you can utilize it for the analysis of the flow or tendency of the person including a departure and arrival point, path, transportation, sojourn time, the stopover. Also, because we acquire data from application for smart phones, regardless of a mobile carrier, we collect information from all users installing application.

Visualization sample

The motion of the person 1 day in Tokyo 23 quarters

You can see the time zone of a morning is clustered in Tokyo center, and the time from evening to night is dispersed to the suburbs.

Mesh type floating population data

Good point

  • The grasping population potential by time zone
  • Provides detailed mesh size of 500m, 250m, 100m

It is estimated value data converted for application users to a total Japanese population scale by mesh unit divided into each size all over Japan. We compiled by month and time zone, and you can grasp the characteristics of the area by seeing the population transition by the passage of time. Further, it is generated based on GPS data, it is possible to provide data with a fine mesh size of 500 m, 250 m, 100 m.

Visualization sample

The population density by time in the Tokyo metropolitan area.

It shows estimated values for each mesh by time zone.
Compared to the middle of the night and day, you can see many people are in the center of Tokyo.
(Used 500 m mesh)
