Paper Abstract

The ocean is multidimensional and dynamic in spatial-temporal structure, and effective marine data modeling and representing of marine multidimensional geographic information system is a new hot topic and challenge. This paper proposes a new dynamic real three-dimensional marine data model based on time series multi-surfaces. It utilizes various surfaces to model different marine water bodies and creates three-dimensional topologic relations of objects in marine environments, then uses time series snapshots to delineate dynamic changes. The model is tested in safety estimation of navigation and motion of marine objects, and proved to be effective for the ship navigation.
