Data product description

A CrowdMonitor will provide the end-user with nearly real-time counts in 1 or more geographical areas for a limited period of time (maximum 10 days).

A geographical area is a predefined area of minimum 4 ha and maximum 20 ha.

Data are refreshed every 5 minutes to enable users to follow up closely the upcoming or decreasing flux. The main audience for this solution are security and safety services (police, fire brigade) or event organizers. 

This solution can be used during e.g. fairs, sporting events, festivals.

Support is provided during the event (technical issues, understanding of the figures,…).

CrowdMonitor uses Mobile telco data. This includes all interactions, all SIM cards, all technologies (2G, 3G, 4G and soon 5G), all cells (indoor, outdoor, micro and femto) and all active users on the Orange Belgium network (Orange Belgium clients and international roaming clients) that can be used for data analysis purposes.
