Conference Schedule - FOSDEM PGDay 2020

Managing Mobility Data In PostgreSQL

Date: 2020-01-31
Time: 12:30 - 13:20
Room: PGDay at Hilton

MobilityDB is an open source moving object database system ( Its core function is to efficiently store and query mobility tracks, such as vehicle GPS trajectories. It is engineered up from PostgreSQL and PostGIS, providing spatiotemporal data management via SQL. It integrates with the PostgreSQL eco-system allowing for complex architectures such as cloud deployments using Citus.

The presentation will explain the architecture of MobilityDB, its database types, indexes, and operations. An end to end example will be demonstrated, starting with data preparation, loading, transformation, querying, until visualization. This presentation will be of special interest to the PostgreSQL community, and to professionals in the transportation domain.

This presentation will build on our talks in 2019, and FOSS4G Belgium 2019.
