Processing of Spatio-temporal Queries in Image Databases Processing of Spatio-temporal Queries in Image Databases

Abstract

Overlapping Linear Quadtrees is a structure suitable for storing consecutive raster images according to transaction time (a database of evolving images). This structure saves considerable space without sacriicing time performance in accessing every single image. Moreover, it can be used for answering eeciently window queries for a number of consecutive images (spatio-temporal queries). In this paper, we present three such temporal window queries: strict containment, border intersect and cover. Besides, based on a method of producing synthetic pairs of evolving images (random images with speciied aggregation) we present empirical results on the I/O performance of these queries.
