The study aims to devise ways of applying smart cell to spatial policies. Smart cell, mobile phone big data, is the minimum unit in which individual spatial information is identifiable in real time.
Developing countries can use smart cells to build social statistical databases, as such nations tend to lack basic statistical data on their populations and economically active people due to underdeveloped social institutions and budget constraints. Furthermore, smart cells can be incorporated into emergency prevention and response systems. Mobile big data is an automatic data collection system based on mobile phones that enables constant monitoring of how many people in a given area are at risk from natural and social disasters.
