Webinar Recap: Analyzing COVID-19 Impact Using Mobile Location Data

COVID-19 is a global challenge that will require the cooperation of the public and private sector in order to mitigate and ultimately solve the crisis. UberMedia has dedicated resources to provide up to date insights on consumer movement and social distancing.

This webinar is one piece of our effort to assist researchers and the global community in understanding the impact of COVID-19 and social distancing on consumer behavior. In this webinar we will cover:

  • How do levels of social distancing in selected US cities compare to Italy and South Korea?
  • What potential COVID-19 hotspots have been created by travel from outbreak epicenters?
  • How much have Americans reduced their travel away from their home in selected US cities?
  • How has COVID-19 and social distancing affected foot traffic to selected retail locations and categories?

Our research is powered by de-identified & aggregated location insights from hundreds of millions of devices that have opted into sharing their location data.

We will also cover our COVID-19 Researcher’s Toolkit, and more COVID-19 mobile location resources that are on the way from UberMedia.
