The objective of the course is to equip the student to perform analyses that enable value creation from spatial, temporal, and spatio-temporal data. Such data occurs frequently in many important societal and industrial settings and applications, e.g., in relation to smart cities, transportation, social-media analytics, census data applications, predictive maintenance, and digital energy.
methods for aggregation and the identification of patterns: Examples include spatial and temporal aggregation and the identification of temporal and spatial patterns; and motifs, trends and periodicity in time series
methods for the identification of similarity and clusters: Examples include nearest-neighbor querying of spatial and spatio-temporal data; clustering of spatial and spatio-temporal point data, such as point of interest data and other spatially and temporally annotated data; trajectory mining and clustering such as the identification of co-movement, convoys, flocks, and swarms; and similarity and correlations in time series
methods for the identification of outliers: for example outlier detection in point-of-interest data, time series, and trajectories
prediction methods: for example prediction of future states from present and past data in the form of time series, prediction of future locations of trajectories
