Trajectory data are widely-used in several applications, like destination prediction, public transportation optimization, travel route recommendation, etc. However, due to the nature of spatio-temporal locality, raw trajectory data usually contain redundant movement information. This observation motivates the trajectory simplification approaches which discard some points with preserving some specific features, such as position features, direction features, and so on. This talk firstly defines the trajectory simplification problems. Then, several simplification approaches are described, including position-preserving and direct-preserving approaches. Finally, a velocity-preserving trajectory simplification will be introduced which preserves both velocity and position information from the origin trajectory.
