Abstract: The past composite structures for managing spatio-temporal data based on the road network usually use road segment as units to divide moving objects into different groups. This scheme causes inaccurate description about vehicles' current segments, and also takes high update cost caused by R-Tree's inherent property. In this paper, we propose an improved partition method, which uses a new division unit called Cross Region (CR) to group the moving objects inside road networks, and then a new structure called CR-Tree is also proposed to be the static part of the composite structure. With CR, the position description for vehicles becomes more accurate, and the update cost could also be decreased.
