  Understanding movement in context with heterogeneous data
Derin O., Mitra A., Stroila M., Custers B., Meulemans W., Roeloffzen M., Verbeek K.  MOVE 2019 (Proceedings of the 1st ACM SIGSPATIAL International Workshop on Computing with Multifaceted Movement Data, Chicago, IL,  Nov 5, 2019) 1-4, 2019. Type: Proceedings

Mobility studies on humans, vehicles, and animals involve trajectory data, which allows for location tracking over time per entity. Trajectory data can help with analyzing and understanding the location information of an entity or a crowd, the flo...

  A real-time framework for task assignment in hyperlocal spatial crowdsourcing
Tran L., To H., Fan L., Shahabi C.  ACM Transactions on Intelligent Systems and Technology 9(3): 1-26, 2018. Type: Article

Hyperspatial crowdsourcing is a low-cost methodology that uses capable individuals, located in the vicinity of task location, to acquire fine-grain data for spatially distributed tasks. However, it is constrained by the budget. This paper analyzes...

  Popularity-aware spatial keyword search on activity trajectories
Zheng K., Zheng B., Xu J., Liu G., Liu A., Li Z.  World Wide Web 20(4): 749-773, 2017. Type: Article

In the old days, futuristic beeping devices allowed James Bond to track the villain and come in just in time to save the world (and flee with the girl kept prisoner, of course!). Nowadays things have grown a little bit more complex. Position alone...
