Spatiotemporal data comprises of states or position for an object, an event in space over time. Huge amount of the data is available in various application areas such as environment monitoring, traffic management, and weather forecast. This data might be collected and stored at various locations at different points of time. Many challenges are posed in analytical processing and mining of such data due to complexity of the spatiotemporal objects and their relationships with each other in both temporal and spatial dimensions. More scalable and practical approach in this context is distributed analysis and mining of the spatiotemporal data.

Multi-Agent System deals with applications which need distributed problem solving. The behavior of the agents is based on the data observed from various distributed sources. Since the agents in multi-agent system are generally distributed and have reactive and proactive characteristic, It is appealing to combine distributed spatiotemporal data mining with multi-agent system.

The core issues and problems in multi-agent distributed spatiotemporal data analysis and mining do not concern specific data mining techniques. Its core issues and problems are related to achieving collaboration in the multi-agent system indented for distributed spatiotemporal data analysis and mining. This paper is intended to describe architecture of multi-agent system for spatiotemporal data mining and identify issues involved in realization of such system and also to review technologies available for developing such system.
