  Data Management Support for
Location Based Services
    Executive summary  

The project Data Management Support for Location-Based Services is based on a simple yet wide-reaching thesis: by capturing pertinent aspects of reality in the computer - in semantically rich and appropriately organized structures and with powerful update and retrieval techniques available - an ideal foundation for delivering a wide range of location-based services (LBS) is obtained.

With CfPC, Euman, Kort og Matrikelstyrelsen, Nykredit, Sonofon, and Vejdirektoratet, researchers at Aalborg University aim to explore the data management foundations for location-enabled services.

The goal of the project is to develop techniques for effectively handling and querying LBS data and to test out these techniques in a real-world scenario together with the project partners.

The research themes of the project are the following:

  • Data Warehousing in Relation to LBS
  • Representation of Geo-Related Content in LBS
  • Efficient Update and Advanced Querying of Geo-Related Content

Expected Results
The expected results are as follows:

  • Techniques for LBS data warehouses, including modelling and analysing advanced data types, and performance-enhancing methods.
  • Representation techniques for geo-related content in relation to LBS, including integrated, multiple representations and uncertainty handling.
  • Techniques for efficient update and advanced querying of geo-related content, including efficient indexing and updating, and advanced query processing.
  • Prototypes supporting the techniques
  • A driver “co-pilot” demonstrating the commercial application of the techniques
  • Dissemination of results in scientific papers
