Widespread availability of location aware devices (such as GPS receivers) promotes capture of detailed movement trajectories of people, animals, vehicles and other moving objects, opening new options for a better understanding of the processes involved. In this paper we investigate spatio-temporal movement patterns in large tracking data sets. We present a(More)
Edge contraction is shown to be a useful mechanism to improve lower bound heuristics for treewidth. A successful lower bound for treewidth is the degeneracy: the maximum over all subgraphs of the minimum degree. The degeneracy is polynomial time computable. We introduce the notion of contraction degeneracy: the maximum over all minors of the minimum degree.(More)
Spatio-temporal data is any information relating space and time. This entry specifically considers data involving point objects moving over time. The terms entity and trajectory will refer to such a point object and the representation of its movement, respectively. Movement patterns in such data refer to (salient) events and episodes expressed by a set of(More)
In this paper we discuss the complexity and approximability of the minimum corridor connection problem where, given a rectilinear decomposition of a rectilinear polygon into “rooms”, one has to find the minimum length tree along the edges of the decomposition such that every room is incident to a vertex of the tree. We show that the problem is strongly(More)

A trajectory is a sequence of locations, each associated with a timestamp, describing the movement of a point. Trajectory data is becoming increasingly available and the size of recorded trajectories is getting larger. In this paper we study the problem of compressing planar trajectories such that the most common spatio-temporal queries can still be(More)
Analysing a football match is without doubt an important task for coaches, talent scouts, players and even media; and with current technologies more and more match data is collected. Several companies offer the ability to track the position of the players and the ball with high accuracy and high resolution. They also offer software that include basic(More)
