Moving objects databases (MODs) provide the framework for the efficient storage and retrieval of the changing position of continuously moving objects. This includes the current and past locations of moving objects and the support of spatial queries that refer to historical location information and future projections as well. Nowadays, new spatiotemporal applications that require tracking and recording the trajectories of moving objects online are emerging. Digital battlefields, traffic supervision, mobile communication, navigation systems, and geographic information systems (GIS) are among these applications. Towards this goal, during recent years many efforts have focused on MOD formalism, data models, query languages, visualization, and access methods (Guting et al., 2000; Saltenis & Jensen, 2002; Sistla, Wolfson, Chamberlain, & Dao, 1997). However, little work has appeared on benchmarking.
