Big Spatiotemporal Data Management Using MobilityDB & Citus | Citus Con: An Event for Postgres 2022

Video of a talk at Citus Con: An Event for Postgres, given by Mohamed Bakli who is an expert in the MobilityDB extension to PostgreSQL. In this talk, Mohamed explains how MobilityDB integrates with Citus to support big spatiotemporal data management in PostgreSQL. MobilityDB is an open-source moving object database system that extends PostgreSQL and PostGIS with temporal and spatiotemporal types and operations. Its core function is to efficiently store and query mobility tracks, such as vehicle GPS trajectories. MobilityDB is an OSGeo community project.

Mohamed Bakli is a MobilityDB developer and Big Data researcher from the Université libre de bruxelles, where he is a member of the MobilityDB project steering committee and development team.
