Abstract: Knowledge on the spatiotemporal dynamics of people is important for public governance, policy-making, research and development. The Era of Big Data has provided unprecedented possibilities to track human mobility, and has also raised new risks and challenges. The Mobility Lab at the University of Tartu has 15 years of experience in making use of passive and active mobile positioning datasets in a wide variety of research directions. As a more recent spatiotemporal data type for the lab, the longitudinal GPS-tracking dataset has opened up new frontiers in studying human dynamics since 2013. The smart phone application MobilityLab, developed jointly by the Mobility Lab and Cambridge Computer Laboratory, collects various locational and behavioural data on a voluntary basis. MobilityLog surveys are complemented by qualitative interviews held both at the beginning and end of the automated data collection period. The interviews cover the semantics of visited places, travel behaviour, use of information and communication technology, main social contacts, and social characteristics of sample. The Mobility Lab has just started new GPS-based longitudinal surveys in the field of segregation, environmental exposure, and transnationality.
