报告题目：Mining Geospatial Data
邀请人：东北大学 计算机科学与工程学院 王斌 副教授、李芳芳 讲师
With the proliferation of GPS enabled devices, massive amounts of geospatial data are being generated at an unprecedented scale. The talk will first give an of the research on mining geospatialdata done by the team of the speaker. Then the rest of the talk will cover the following the following topics on querying and mining geo-spatial data of three different types:
1) representative spatial object selection, 2) deep mining for trajectory data, and 2) region analysis and search.
