If you are collecting your Location data through Google Maps' Location History data and your phone, you can export all of this data via Google Takeout. By uploading your Google Location History data to Open Humans you can use this data to share it with projects or analyze it with Personal Data Notebooks.
To get started all you have to do is login into Open Humans, authorize this integration and upload your Google Location History takeout.
Some of your questions should be answered in our FAQ.

We store different kinds of data depending on whether you are accessing this app as a guest or if you are being logged in with your Open Humans account:
The short answer: No, by uploading your Google Location History file you don't agree to make your data public or give anyone access to this data. It will be stored in your account and you decide with whom to share.
The longer answer: It can be public if you want it to be public. If you're logged in into Open Humans you can head to your personal data page, and make individual sources publicly available. If that's too much genome sharing for you, you can also see if there are individual projects or studies with which you want to share your genome.
