In the last years there has been a considerable increase in the availability of continuous sensor measurements in a wide range of application domains, such as Location-Based Services (LBS), medical monitoring systems, manufacturing plants and engineering facilities to ensure efficiency, product quality and safety, hydrologic and geologic observing systems, pollution management, and others. Due to the inherent imprecision of sensor observations, many investigations have recently turned into querying, mining and storing uncertain data. Uncertainty can also be due to data aggregation, privacy-preserving transforms, and error-prone mining algorithms.
