Wei Feng, Chao Zhang, Wei Zhang, Jiawei Han, Jianyong Wang, Charu Aggarwal, Jianbin Huang
2015 2015 IEEE 31st International Conference on Data Engineering  
To support aggregation with different space and time granularity, we propose a data structure called STREAMCUBE, which is an extension of the data cube structure from the database community with spatial  ...  Different efficient methods are used to speed up event similarity computations. Finally, we have conducted extensive experiments on a real twitter data.  ...  As shown in Figure 5b , the localness is defined in a similar way with burstiness. The difference is that we compare the popularity from different regions instead of different time frames. B.  ...
