Ph.D. Defense: Michael Gowanlock, “In-Memory Distance Threshold Searches on Moving Object Trajectories”

Wed 2/11/2015, 3PM POST 302 Abstract:  Processing moving object trajectories arises in many applications. To gaininsight into target domains, historical continuous trajectory similarity searches find those trajectories that have similar attributes in common. In this work, we focus on a trajectory similarity search, the distance threshold search, which finds all trajectories within a given distance […]
