The operational definition of a smart cell and the process of producing information about smart cells can be understood as follows for the purposes of this study. A smart cell is the minimum unit of territory in which individual spatial information (e.g., personal characteristics and location) is identifiable in real time.

Smart cells can track the behavior of individuals through space by means of lines (representing movement) and dots (representing individuals), which can be seen moving in and out of smart cells. Data for this purpose are collected by mobile phone base stations and processed by wireless service carriers.
