Abstract

Spatiotemporal database management systems can become an enabling technology for important applications such as Geographic Information Systems (GIS), environmental information systems, and multimedia. In this paper we address research issues in spatio-temporal databases, by providing an analysis of the challenges set, the problems encountered, as well as the proposed solutions and the envisioned research areas open to investigation.

Keywords

Geographic Information System Query Processing Spatial Database Spatial Object Temporal Database 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
