Centralized publishing of big location data can provide accurate and timely information to assist in traffic management and for facilitating people to decide travel time and route, mitigate traffic congestion, and reduce unnecessary waste. However, the spatio-temporal correlation, non-linearity, randomness, and uncertainty of big location data make it impossible to decide an optimal data publishing instance through traditional methods. This paper, accordingly, proposes a publishing interval predicting method for centralized publication of big location data based on the promising paradigm of deep learning. First, the adaptive adjusted sampling method is designed to address the challenge of finding a reasonable release time via a prediction mechanism. Second, the Maximal Overlap Discrete Wavelet Transform (MODWT) is introduced for the decomposition of time series in order to separate different features of big location data. Finally, different deep learning models are selected to construct the entire framework according to various time-domain features. Experimental analysis suggests that the proposed prediction scheme is not only feasible, but also improves the prediction accuracy in contrast to the traditional deep learning mechanisms.
