Orbital Insight and UNDP Cairo Pattern of Life Analysis in Cairo


Egypt’s economic growth has not widely translated into additional services for the urban poor. Orbital Insight, in partnership with the UNDP, applied geospatial analytics to understand patterns of life in low-income neighborhoods in Cairo. The goal of the study was to examine the use of anonymized and aggregated location data to support the UNDP in its mission to eradicate poverty and reduce inequalities in the developing world.
