Updated 22/05/2020: v13 now includes Google reports up to the 16th of May 2020.  Please use the latest version which includes all 6 mobility categories.  We now also use the data from the CSV provided by Google and calculate the data using a mean of the last three days from each date.  This differs slightly from Googles PDF reports that present data only from the single previous day.  This week we have updated the maps for just the latest data up to 16/05.  Please note v11 was not a valid publicised release.

We have generated Global and EU maps of the mobility data Google has published through  a series of PDF files and now a CSV file presenting reports on national and subnational human mobility levels relative to a baseline data of late January 2020. The details and the PDF files can be found at

The first set of data were released on April 2 2020 and have been revised weekly since then.

The authors have extracted the majority of these data into a series of excel spreadsheets and maps, currently accessible on figshare.  The spreadsheet provides the data for % change in numbers of records each week at various types of location categories illustrated by: retail and recreation, grocery and pharmacy, parks and beaches, transit stations, workplaces and residential. Further details are in the notes worksheet.  The maps (for EU & Global) display these data.  We provide  600 dpi jpegs of the Global (“WD”) and European (“EU”) mapped values at the latest date available,  for each of the mobility categories: retail and recreation (“retrec”) ,  grocery and pharmacy (“grocphar”) , parks (“parks”) , transit stations (“transit”),  residential (“resid”) and workplaces (“work”).  We also provide maps of the changes from the previous week (“ch”).

All data extracting and subsequent processing have been carried out by ERGO (Environmental Research Group Oxford) on behalf of the MOOD H2020 project.  Data will be periodically updated.  Additional maps can be obtained on request to the authors.
