Driven by the advances in location positioning techniques and the popularity of location sharing services, semantic enriched trajectory data have become unprecedentedly available. While finding relevant Point-of-Interest (POIs) based on users' locations and query keywords has been extensively studied in the past years, it is largely untouched to explore the(More)
The efficiency of spatial query processing is crucial for many applications such as location-based services. In spatial networks, queries like k-NN queries are all based on network distance evaluation. Classic solutions for these queries rely on network expansion and are not efficient enough for large networks. Some approaches have improved the query(More)
Conventional top-k spatial keyword queries require users to explicitly specify their preferences between spatial proximity and keyword relevance. In this work we investigate how to eliminate this requirement by enhancing the conventional queries with interaction, resulting in Interactive Top-k Spatial Keyword (ITkSK) query. Having confirmed the feasibility(More)
The last decade has witnessed the prevalence of sensor and GPS technologies that produce a high volume of trajectory data representing the motion history of moving objects. However some characteristics of trajectories such as variable lengths and asynchronous sampling rates make it difficult to fit into traditional database systems that are disk-based and(More)
It is nowadays quite common for road networks to have textual contents on the vertices, which describe auxiliary information (e.g., business, traffic, etc.) associated with the vertex. In such road networks, which are modelled as weighted undirected graphs, each vertex is associated with one or more keywords, and each edge is assigned with a weight, which(More)
In this paper, we study a route summarization framework for Personalized Navigation dubbed PerNav - with which the goal is to generate more intuitive and customized turn-by-turn directions based on user generated content. The turn-by-turn directions provided in the existing navigation applications are exclusively derived from underlying road network(More)
Understanding the dynamics of human daily mobility patterns is essential for the management and planning of urban facilities and services. Travel smart cards, which record users' public transporting histories, capture rich information of users' mobility pattern. This provides the opportunity to discover valuable knowledge from these transaction records. In(More)
STUDY DESIGN Case report and review of relevant literature. OBJECTIVE To discuss the surgical strategies and clinical outcome of managing huge tear drop fracture of axis. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA Teardrop fracture of axis is rarely seen, especially the huge type. The surgical technique is demanding because of the special anatomical structure and(More)
The proliferation of GPS-enabled smart mobile devices enables us to collect a large-scale trajectories of moving objects with GPS tags. While the raw trajectories that only consists of positional information have been studied extensively, many recent works have been focusing on enriching the raw trajectories with semantic knowledge. The resulting data,(More)
With the advances in geo-positioning technologies and location-based services, it is nowadays quite common for road networks to have textual contents on the vertices. Previous work on identifying an optimal route that covers a sequence of query keywords has been studied in recent years. However, in many practical scenarios, an optimal route might not always(More)
