Spatiotemporal Pattern Queries in Secondo

Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 5644)


We describe an initial implementation for spatiotemporal pattern queries in Secondo. That is, one can specify for example temporal order constraints on the fulfillment of predicates on moving objects. It is shown how the query optimizer is extended to support spatiotemporal pattern queries by suitable indexes.
