This publication presents a survey on the clustering algorithms proposed for spatiotemporal data. We begin our study with definitions of spatiotemporal datatypes. Next we provide a categorization of spatiotemporal datatypes with the special emphasis on the spatial representation and diversity in temporal aspect. We conduct our deliberation focusing mainly on the complex spatiotemporal objects. In particular, we review algorithms for two problems already proposed in literature: clustering complex spatiotemporal objects as polygons or geographical areas and measuring distances between complex spatial objects. In addition to description of the problems mentioned above, we also attempt to provide a comprehensive references review and provide a general look on the different problems related to the clustering spatiotemporal data.
