Basic Concepts of Movement Data
From ancient days, people have observed various moving entities, from insects and fishes to planets and stars, and investigated their movement behaviours. Although methods that were used in earlier times for observation, measurement, recording, and analysis of movements are very different from modern technologies, there is still much to learn from past studies. First, this is the thorough attention paid to the multiple aspects of movement. These include not only the trajectory (path) in space, characteristics of motion itself such as speed and direction, and their dynamics over time but also characteristics and activities of the entities that move. Second, this is the striving to relate movements to properties of their surroundings and to various phenomena and events.
