Abstract

In this paper, we present an extension of Oracle, named STOC (Spatio-Temporal Object Cartridge), to support spatio-temporal data management in a practical way. The extension is developed as a PL/SQL package and can be integrated into Oracle to offer spatio-temporal data types as well as spatio-temporal operations for various applications. Users are allowed to use standard SQL to access spatio-temporal data and functions. After an overview of the general features of STOC, we discuss the architecture and implementation of STOC. And finally, a case study of STOC is presented, which shows that STOC is effective to represent and query spatio-temporal data on the basis of Oracle.
