Abstract

Different taxi drivers may use different strategies to choose operating regions and find customers, which is called mobility intelligence. In this paper, we present a visualization system to analyze a large amount of spatial-temporal multi-dimensional trajectory data and identify some key factors that differentiate the top drivers and ordinary drivers according to their income. Two novel encoding schemes, Choice-of-Location graph and Move/Wait Strategy tree, have been proposed to analyze drivers' behaviors when choosing operating locations and drivers' move/wait strategies when their taxis are vacant.We have applied our system to the trajectories of thousands of taxis in a major city and have gained some interesting findings on taxi drivers' mobility intelligence.
