Patent Awarded: System And Method For Spatial Point-Of-Interest Generation And Automated Trip Segmentation Using Location Data

United States Patent 8843315 | Issue Date of U.S. Patent September 23, 2014
This invention is a spatial data processing system and method that allows the automatic, rapid, scalable analysis and transformation of large amounts of travel behavior data (e.g., tracking data points) into individual “points-of-interest” and discrete trips stored in a spatial database. Each trip has a point-of-interest as a starting and ending location, and contains multiple positions (e.g. latitude and longitudes) which define the travel path of the user/device during that time period.
