Movement

The proliferation of mobile devices and popularity of applications like Facebook and Twitter has allowed people to stay connected to their far-spread networks. However, little attention has been spent on connections in the local, physical community. These collocated connections are important for building social capital, sharing resources, and providing physical support.

Movement is a visualization that uses location data generated automatically by mobile devices to increase community awareness following a new standard of privacy preservation. Movement also consists of an app that allows for direct connection to people with shared location histories, again in a secure and private manner. An integrated demo at CSCW will display the popular venues visited by conference attendees and allow users to connect with others who visited the same locations.
