The research area of spatio-temporal data mining, has emerged, where innovative compu- tational techniques are being applied to the analysis of these very large spatio-temporal databases. The size of these databases and the rate that they are being produced is a major limiting factor on performing on-time data analysis. Therefore, there is a need for efficient pre-processing techniques to prepare the data effectively before analysis. In this thesis, we present our data reduction framework for very large spatio-temporal data sets. This framework incorporates our data compression model, based on density- based clustering techniques, to reduce spatio-temporal data. We describe firstly each technique, and then we compare them in an analytical way. Furthermore, we evaluate our model on real world data sets.||Type of material:||Master Thesis||Publisher:||University College Dublin.
