Space Mapper is a mobile phone app that collects information about the spaces we move through as we go about our daily activities. It was used in 2012-2013 by researchers at Princeton University and the Center for Advanced Studies of Blanes (CEAB-CSIC) to study human mobility and social inequality. The study is now over but the app is still available for anyone to use for their own self-tracking.

* Allows you to store, map, and analyze your own movement patterns and to view them in three dimensional spacetime.
* "Refresh GPS" button improves location performance for all of your mapping apps.
* Minimally intrusive and designed to conserve battery power.
* Turn it off and on whenever you want.
* Free, open source software.
* More on-phone data visualization and analysis tools coming soon.
* Application available in English, Spanish and Catalan.
