SCAWG: A Toolbox for Generating Synthetic Workload for Spatial Crowdsourcing

Existing studies in mobile crowdsourcing (aka spatial crowdsourcing), a hot research area in recent years, face the problem of lacking real­world datasets. We thus published a synthetic dataset generator for producing common datasets for mobile crowdsourcing.

The toolbox can generate synthetic workload patterns based on the spatial (location) and temporal (time) distributions of workers and tasks. As shown in the figure below, it also takes into account the various real-world constraints, such as worker region and worker capacity, worker activeness and temporal workload.
