The main goal of the project is the development of methodologies, techniques, and tools for the management and the analysis of large amounts of data obtained from a spatio-temporal tracking of moving objects, basically only knowing their spatial positions at some specific time points. The term object refers to the generality of possible mobile devices that can be monitored, e.g., they can be associated with vehicles, animals, or people.

The main goal of the project is the development of methodologies, techniques, and tools for the management and the analysis of large collections of temporal, and sometimes also spatial, data.
The first part of the project will be devoted to the analysis of existing tools for the integration of data, which are distributed over heterogeneous data sources (databases that possibly differ in their goals, structures, and contents) in a single data warehouse. Besides standard tools and methodologies for conceptual and logical design, we will take into consideration existing tools for schema matching (the process that allows one to establish whether, and to what extent, two components of two different schemas are semantically related), such as, for instance, COMA, schema mapping (the transformation of a schema into another one), such as Clio, and instance mapping (the transformation of an instance of a database into an instance of another one).

The present research project is devoted to the analysis, modeling, and management of 3D spatial data about one or more buildings. The proposed solution must combine the advantages of BIM (Building Information Modeling) design, that supports that entire life cycle of buildings, with the advantages of GISs (Geographic Information Systems), that make it possible to locate spatial objects and phenomena in a geographical domain of interest. A special attention wlll be given to recent developments in the area of 3D data and framework management via Web. The focus of the project will be on IT asset management in a Web environment. A major functionality of the system will thus be the possibility of interacting with 3D models in an effective and efficient way. To summarize, the project aims at devising and developing a system architecture for the definition, visualization, and update of (IT) building assets via Web.
