Spatio-temporal data is the abstract of the spatio-temporal characteristics and process of the real world. Spatio-temporal database modeling on the earlier stages attempted to capture the state of real world objects or the physical event upon them, on the time line.

In this paper, the authors have reviewed the different types of spatio-temporal data models that have been proposed in the literature as well as new theories and concepts that have emerged .
