Traces of moving objects in a city, which depict lots of semantics concerning human mobility and city dynamics, are becoming increasingly important. In this article, we first give a brief introduction to trace data; then we present six research issues in trace analysis and mining, and survey the state-of-the-art methods; finally, five promising application domains in smart cities are discussed.
