Applications targeting smart cities tackle common challenges, however solutions are seldom portable from one city to another due to the heterogeneity of smart city ecosystems. A major obstacle involves the differences in the levels of available information. In this work, we present REMI, which is a mining framework that handles varying degrees of information availability by providing a meta-solution to missing data. The framework core concept is the REMI layered stack architecture, offering two…

PlanetSense is proposed, a platform for geospatial intelligence that is built to harness the existing power of archived data and add to that, the dynamics of real-time streams, seamlessly integrated with sophisticated data mining algorithms and analytics tools for generating operational intelligence on the fly.
Mining significant semantic locations from GPS data
A general framework for the mining of semantically meaningful, significant locations, e.g., shopping malls and restaurants, from GPS data is proposed and is capable of outperforming baseline methods and an extension of an existing proposal.
Heterogeneous stream processing for disaster detection and alarming
A novel approach for event recognition in massive streams of heterogeneous data driven by privacy policies and big data event processing is presented, which integrates multi-faceted sensing and distributed event detection to identify, label and increase confidence in detected incidents.
Space and time-dependant bus accessibility: A case study in Rome
A complete methodological process to analysize and measure the accessibility of a city using bus GPS traces, which involves the application of recent results in spatio-temporal data mining in order to detect bus lines and bus stops from the traces dataset.

Mining interesting locations and travel sequences from GPS trajectories
This work first model multiple individuals' location histories with a tree-based hierarchical graph (TBHG), and proposes a HITS (Hypertext Induced Topic Search)-based inference model, which regards an individual's access on a location as a directed link from the user to that location.
City-Scale Map Creation and Updating using GPS Collections
This paper develops a framework to create up-to-date maps with rich knowledge from GPS trajectory collections using novel graph-based clustering techniques with prior knowledge on road design and develops a scale- and orientation-invariant traj-SIFT feature to localize and recognize junctions using a supervised learning framework.
