Spatial and spatio-temporal data analysis based on the CSTM

Based on the CSTM (Continuous Spatio-Temporal Model), this research try to develop a theory framework and some algorithms for multi scale spatio-temporal data analysis. Different from existing GIS analysis framework and algorithms, the CSTM includes two extra dimensions for resolution levels, making the CSTM possible to deal with scale issues in the similar way as conducting spatial or temporal analysis. The algorithms developed by this research will find information and patterns which have not been noticed before from raster-based spatio-temporal data.
