Basic Information

Overview

Human population distributions and human mobility patterns are of great interest for social and public health planning, including the geographical dissemination and evolution of human pathogens. The digital age has made it possible to assemble new kinds of data that describe human mobility at a range of spatial and temporal scales. The purpose of THuMMP is to make this data more accessible to everyone.
