Destination prediction is an essential task for a number of emerging location based applications such as recommending sightseeing places and sending targeted advertisements. A common approach to destination prediction is to derive the probability of a location being the destination based on historical trajectories. However, existing techniques suffer from the \"Data sparsity problem\", i.e., the number of available historical trajectories is far from sufficient to cover all possible trajectories. This problem considerably limits the amount of query trajectories whose predicted destinations can be inferred.
