We transform data into meaningful information

Data processing steps - Positium Data Mediator

Mobile network operators store vast quantities of location information for operational purposes. This anonymised data is a valuable resource for a variety of domains. However, it is not an easy task to process billions of location points into understandable and meaningful information. For this reason, Positium has created the Positium Data Mediator—a technological platform for processing Mobile Big Data that uses an internationally accepted methodology based on years of research and development.

The Positium Data Mediator is a mobile big data processing platform for the transformation of data from Mobile Network Operators into meaningful and understandable statistical indicators. The received information can be used for population statistics monitoring, mobility, tourism statistics and other domains.

  • Scalable, build on Hadoop
  • Modular
  • Output API for third parties (SDMX, JSON)
  • Full-chain from raw data to visualisation of results

In cooperation with the University of Tartu Mobility Lab (Professor Rein Ahas), we have developed an internationally approved methodology for processing Mobile Big Data into meaningful and reliable statistical indicators that represent the location and movement patterns of people.

  • Geographical interpolation (point-to-grid)
  • Continuity data model
  • Joint methodology for population, mobility and tourism
  • Customizable to local specifications

We constantly develop and improve our methodology and processing platform. For this, we cooperate with the academia and international partners. Our methodology has been developed through research and validation, and tested in real-life use cases. We present our results at international conferences and in peer-reviewed publications.

  • More than 30 peer-reviewed research publications
  • International collaboration with universities and global organisations
  • Continuous investments in research
