Moving objects databases are particular cases of spatio-temporal databases that represent and manage changes related to the movement of objects. Unlike spatio-temporal applications associated with geographic phenomena where the identity of geographic features may change over time, in moving objects databases the objects maintain their identities but change their locations or shapes through time. That is, it is the geometric aspect of an object that changes rather than the object itself. Within this domain, the most suitable applications are those where objects are cars, airplanes, or any object with regular movements.
