Abstract

A first glance at the title of this book might suggest it to be very specialised. Indeed this perhaps reflects my own expectations before opening it. However, once I start reading it I first realised that the topic in itself has a broad portfolio of applications. For example, the ideas used in this book allow the modelling of movements of people, vehicles or animals. These topics then lead to other application areas – for example, tracking people’s move- ments via mobile phone Global Positioning System (GPS) signals allows monitoring of census-based travel-to-work data or allows novel approaches to the estimation of daytime populations of cities to be carried out.
