MobilityDB is an extension to the PostgreSQL database system and its spatial extension PostGIS. It allows temporal and spatio-temporal objects to be stored in the database, that is, objects whose attribute values and/or location evolves in time. MobilityDB includes functions for analysis and processing of temporal and spatio-temporal objects and provides support for GiST and SP-GiST indexes. MobilityDB is open source and its code is available on Github. An adapter for the Python programming language is also available on Github.
MobilityDB is developed by the Computer & Decision Engineering Department of the Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB) under the direction of Prof. Esteban Zimányi. ULB is an OGC Associate Member and member of the OGC Moving Feature Standard Working Group (MF-SWG).
