The collection of moving object data is becoming more and more common, and therefore there is an increasing need for the efficient analysis and knowledge extraction of these data in different application domains. Trajectory data are normally available as sample points, and do not carry semantic information, which is of fundamental importance for the(More)
Analysis of trajectory data is the key to a growing number of applications aiming at global understanding and management of complex phenomena that involve moving objects (e.g. worldwide courier distribution, city traffic management, bird migration monitoring). Current DBMS support for such data is limited to the ability to store and query raw movement (i.e.(More)
Trajectory data play a fundamental role to an increasing number of applications, such as transportation management, urban planning and tourism. Trajectory data are normally available as sample points. However, for many applications, meaningful patterns cannot be extracted from sample points without considering the background geographic information. In this(More)
Focus on movement data has increased as a consequence of the larger availability of such data due to current GPS, GSM, RFID, and sensors techniques. In parallel, interest in movement has shifted from raw movement data analysis to more application-oriented ways of analyzing segments of movement suitable for the specific purposes of the application.

In this paper we propose TripBuilder, a new framework for personalized touristic tour planning. We mine from Flickr the information about the actual itineraries followed by a multitude of different tourists, and we match these itineraries on the touristic Point of Interests available from Wikipedia. The task of planning personalized touristic tours is then(More)
The constant increase of moving object data imposes the need for modeling, processing, and mining trajectories, in order to find and understand the patterns behind these data. Existing works have mainly focused on the geometric properties of trajectories, while the semantics and the background geographic information has rarely been addressed. We claim that(More)
We analyze urban mobility and public places under a new perspective: how can we feature the places in a city based on how people move among them? To answer this question we need to combine places, like points of interest, with mobility information like the trajectories of individuals moving within a city. To accomplish this, we propose a methodology based(More)
