STAT: Spatio-temporal analytics toolkit

View publication


Most of the defense and security applications involve various types of spatial temporal data coming from multiple data source layers. How to analyze the large amount of cross layer geospatial temporal data to get actionable insights is an increasingly important challenge to these applications. There are a lot of research work in the area of spatial data model and management, spatial query and spatial data mining. However, applying these technologies to create a cross cutting analytics solutions is very time consuming and challenging. There is lack of framework and mechanism to plug in reusable spatio-temporal analytics assets. In this paper, we discuss a spatio-temporal analytics toolkit that provides a common underlying information fusion infrastructure, and a plug-in mechanism to support reusable cross domain spatiotemporal analytics. © 2011 SPIE.
