Abstract. We present a big data framework for the prediction of streaming trajectory data, enriched from other data sources and exploiting mined patterns of trajectories, allowing accurate long-term predictions with low latency. To meet this goal, we follow a multi-step methodology. First, we efficiently compress surveillance data in an online fashion, by constructing trajectory synopses that are spatio-temporally linked with streaming and archival data from a variety of diverse and heterogeneous data sources. The enriched stream of trajectory synopses is stored in a distributed RDF store, supporting data exploration via SPARQL queries. The enriched stream of synopses along with the raw data is consumed by trajectory prediction algorithms that exploit mined patterns from the RDF store, namely medoids of (sub-) trajectory clusters, which prolong the horizon of useful predictions. The framework is extended with offline and online interactive visual analytics tool to facilitate real world analysis in the maritime and the aviation domains.
