Navigation and Point of Search in Road Networks

Primary supervisor

Aamir Cheema

Research area

Data Engineering

Modern map-based systems and location-based services rely heavily on the ability to efficiently provide navigation services and the capability to search points of interests (POIs) based on their location or textual information. The aim of this project is to build a next-generation navigation system by addressing limitations in the current systems – such as allowing more meaningful distance measures, modeling uncertainty in data sources and queries, and exploiting rich information from several data sources.
