The continuous within skyline query is an important type of location-based query, which can provide useful skyline object information for the user. Previous studies on processing the continuous within skyline query focus exclusively on a static road network, where the object attributes and the conditions of roads remain unchanged. However, in real-world applications, object attributes and road conditions inevitably vary with time, which severely limits the applicability of previous studies in practice. Therefore, in this paper, we address the issue of efficiently processing the continuous within skyline query in dynamic road networks with time-varying information. We design three elaborate data structures, the object attribute dominating matrix (OADM), the road distance sorted list (RDSL) and the skyline object expansion tree (SOET), to maintain the information of objects and the road network. Combined with OADM, RDSL and SOET, we develop an efficient algorithm, namely the within skyline object updating algorithm, to provide real-time processing of the time-varying information. Finally, a thorough experimental evaluation is conducted to show the merits of the proposed approaches. View Full-Text
