Abstract: The Gaea system is a spatio-temporal database management system under development at Worcester Polytechnic Institute. Gaea is intended to provide advanced data management and analysis to geographical information systems (GIS) for global change studies. We present the objectives and long-term vision of the Gaea project, describe the Gaea system architecture and discuss the current state of development.
