Traditionally, user visitation and check-in have been assumed as the same behavior, yet this fundamental assumption can be questionable and lacks supporting evidence.

Leveraging a localization dataset to model urban revisitation and a Foursqaure dataset to delineate re-check-in, we identify feature..
