Abstract

This chapter discusses a general framework for the analysis of trajectories of moving objects, designed around a Trajectory Data Warehouse (TDW). We argue that data warehouse technologies, combined with geographic visual analytics tools, can play an important role in granting very fast, accurate and understandable analysis of mobility data. We describe how in the last decade the TDW models have changed in order to provide the user with a more suitable model of the reality of interest and we also cope with the challenge of semantic trajectories. As a use case we illustrate how the framework can be instantiated for realizing a recommender system for tourists.
