Place connectivity – shaped by human movement – is quantified by the strength of spatial interactions among locations. Using social media data, they introduce a global multi-scale place connectivity index (PCI) based on spatial interactions among places that have been geotagged in tweets. This analysis can enable modeling the spread of COVID-19 and hurricane evacuation destination choices, helping with future policy and planning procedures.
