Making Spatiotemporal Data More Useful: An Entity Linking Approach (2020–2022)
This project aims to establish a methodology for spatiotemporal entity linking by utilising object movement traces to support database integration and data quality management for the next-generation of data where spatiotemporal attributes are ubiquitous. It expects to develop a novel entity linking paradigm for automatic, efficient and reliable spatiotemporal data integration together with a new data privacy study in this context. Expected outcome include new database technologies for data signature generation and similarity-based search, and improved location data privacy protection methods. This project should provide significant benefits to all areas where high quality spatiotemporal data fusion is essential to meaningful data analysis.
