Abstract

Location sharing services can be seen as “social sensors” that provide data revealing real world interactions. In this paper, we examine the case of foursquare check-ins at airports and we show that these data can be indicative of the passengers’ traffic, while their number is hundreds of times lower than the number of actual traffic observations.
