Rapid Visualization of Global Ship Tracks Data Based on 3D GIS
On the basis of the analysis of spatial distribution characteristics of massive ship tracks data, the model of spatiotemporal cube was established and the “3DR-Tree” algorithm was proposed to study the efficient index building technology. The spatiotemporal query of massive ship tracks data was realized and the ship historical trajectories were also displayed in the global environment intuitively and dynamically, it can be used for maritime search and rescue effectively.
