Semantic trajectory compression


Schmid, F; Richter, K F; Laube, P (2009). Semantic trajectory compression. In: Mamoulis, N; et al. Advances in spatial and temporal databases. Berlin: Springer, 411-416.

Abstract

In the light of rapidly growing repositories capturing the
movement tra jectories of people in spacetime, the need for tra jectory compression becomes obvious. This paper argues for semantic trajectory compression (STC) as a means of substantially compressing the movement trajectories in an urban environment with acceptable information loss. STC exploits that human urban movement and its large–scale use
(LBS, navigation) is embedded in some geographic context, typically defined by transportation networks. STC achieves its compression rate by replacing raw, highly redundant position information from, for example, GPS sensors with a semantic representation of the tra jectory consisting
of a sequence of events. The paper explains the underlying principles of STC and presents an example use case.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
