Using data from cellphone towers provided by one of the biggest telecom companies in the country we were able to find out that, when the government decided to end with the first national lockdown because of the covid-19 pandemic, almost all counties registered an increase in people’s movement. Except for 34, where people stayed even more at home than they used to.

For this project, I’ve analyzed the data provided by the telecom company and developed an interactive map that allowed people check the data.
