Simple and effective tools for the analysis of movement data

Project description


movekit is an open-source software package for the processing and analysis of movement data.


  • Data pre-processing (e.g. data checks, smoothing, duplicate removal, interpolation, outlier detection)
  • Feature extraction (e.g. speed, acceleration, heading)
  • Individual-level movement analysis (e.g. autocorrelation, speed distribution, environment exploration)
  • Group-level analysis (e.g. cohesion, polarisation, coordination, leadership, clustering)
  • Spatial data analysis (Voronoi, delaunay triangulation)
  • Network analysis with networkX

movekit provides support for use cases with movement data and trajectories:


  • 2-dimensional data in the Euclidean space
  • 3-dimensional data in the Euclidean space
  • GPS coordinates (latitude and longitude)


The easiest way to install movekit is by using pip :

pip install movekit
