A new measurement method is proposed to calculate spatio-temporal trajectory similarity, which can reflect the similar degree between two moving object spatio-temporal trajectories compressed by the Maximal Bounding Boxes (MBB). Firstly, the similarity between two trajectories is replaced by the similarity of MBB sequences in respective trajectories which can dramatically decrease the storage volume of the trajectory data. Secondly, some factors affected the similar degree of MBB sequences are

And then, a similarity measurement formula is proposed by integrating these factors. Experiments show that the proposed measurement formula can improve the value of clustering index Dunn.
