This contribution discusses an approach on finding significant locations from a set of GPS tracks, called Hotspots in this contribution. Based on that, a model where traffic infrastructure is represented by a dynamic network of Hotspots is suggested. Besides the location of Hotspots, information about travel times between these Hotspot-Nodes also comes along with the extracted significant places. This information can be used to improve or enrich traffic management and/or navigation systems by consequently achieving a more precise estimation of travel times compared to current systems.
