Pattern queries for trajectory data warehouses

Marcin Gorawski, Paweł Jureczek


This paper presents the query model for Trajectory Data Warehouse. The pattern queries in this paper present a way of transforming object trajectories into region sequences, as well as exploring such sequences using comparison methods. Such comparison methods are divided into two groups. The first group makes it possible to collect information about a particular user-defined pattern. The second involves obtaining information summary of all analyzed trajectory sequences. Information obtained as a result of using the second group may be also used as input data for the first group. We also show the impact of different parameters of transformation of trajectories on the size of stored aggregates.
