Abstract

As location-aware mobile devices such as smartphones have now become prevalent, people are able to easily record their trajectories in daily lives. Such personal trajectories are a very promising means to share their daily life experiences, since important contextual information such as significant locations and activities can be extracted from the raw trajectories. In this paper, we propose MetroScope, a trajectory-based real-time and on-the-go experience sharing system in a metropolitan city. MetroScope allows people to share their daily life experiences through trajectories, and enables them to refer to other people's diverse and interesting experiences in a city. Eventually, MetroScope aims to satisfy users' ever-changing interest in their social environments and enrich their life experiences in a city. To achieve real-time, on-the-go, and personalized recommendation, we propose an approach of monitoring activity patterns over people's location streams.
