The increasing availability of people traces collected by portable devices poses new possibilities and challenges for the study of people mobile behaviour. However, the raw data produced by such portable devices is poor from a semantic point of view, thus the gap between the person’s activity and the raw collected data generated by the activity is still too wide. The work presented in this paper aims to define an algorithm to understand the activity of a moving person from the sequence of… Expand

Towards Semantic Trajectory Data Analysis: A Conceptual and Computational Approach

This doctoral work aims at bringing semantic concepts and statistical computations together for trajectory data analysis, a “conceptual and computational” approach, which involves three major perspectives, i.e. trajectory modelling, trajectory computing, and trajectory pattern discovery. Expand
A conceptual view on trajectories
TLDR
This paper explores how conceptual modeling could provide applications with direct support of trajectories (i.e. movement data that is structured into countable semantic units) as a first class concept and proposes two modeling approaches based on a design pattern and a dedicated data types. Expand
