Title: MC2 - Patterns of Life Analysis


Mini-Challenge 2 asks you to analyze movement and tracking data. GAStech provides many of their employees with company cars for their personal and professional use, but unbeknownst to the employees, the cars are equipped with GPS tracking devices. You are given tracking data for the two weeks leading up to the disappearance, as well as credit card transaction and loyalty card usage data. From this data, can you identify suspicious behaviors? Can you identify people and locations that law enforcement should investigate?
