MSR GPS Privacy Dataset 2009

The table below contains pointers to text files with GPS data taken in the region of Seattle, Washington USA. Each file contains data from one of 21 volunteers who carried a GPS logger with them for approximately eight weeks in the fall of 2009. This set of 21 volunteers is a subset of 37 people who participated in the survey. These 21 people agreed to let us publicize their GPS data on a Web page such as this one, provided that we delete data inside geographic certain regions specified by each volunteer. This GPS study was conducted by Microsoft Research in Redmond, Washington USA.
