    Abstract:

    As one of the largest social media, Weibo is considered as the “Twitter” in China. Based on the geo-tagged information in the sampled Weibo data, we built the Weibo mobility index by provinces and prefecture cities in China. This webinar will give an introduction to this Weibo mobility index, including data sources, methodology, comparative analysis with Baidu mobility index, and some prospective applications of the Weibo mobility data for the spatial studies of China.
