Allen’s well-known Interval Algebra has been developed for temporal representation and reasoning, but there are also interesting spatial applications where intervals can be used. A prototypical example are traffic scenarios where cars and their regions of influence can be represented as intervals on a road as the underlying line. There are several differences of temporal and spatial intervals which have to be considered when developing a spatial interval algebra. In this paper we analyze the… CONTINUE READING
