Whereas research on moving objects is involved in a variety of different application areas, models and methods for movement prediction are often tailored to the specific type of moving objects. However, in most cases, prediction models are taking only historical location in consideration, while characteristics specific to certain type of moving objects are ignored. In this paper, we presented a conceptual model for movement prediction independent on an application area and data model of moving objects considering various object’s characteristics. Related work is critically evaluated, addressing advantages, possible problems and places for improvement. Generic model is proposed, based on an idea to encompass missing pieces in related work and to make the model as general as possible. Prediction process is illustrated on three case studies: prediction of the future location of vehicles, people and wild animals, in order to show their differences and to show how the process can be applied to all of them.
