In this paper we aim at providing a model for the conceptual representation and deductive reasoning of trajectory patterns obtained from mining raw trajectories. This has been achieved by means of a semantic enrichment process, where raw trajectories are enhanced with semantic information and integrated with geographical knowledge encoded in an ontology. The reasoning mechanisms provided by the chosen ontology formalism are exploited to accomplish a further semantic enrichment step that gives a possible interpretation of discovered patterns in terms of movement behaviour. A sketch of the realised system, called Athena, is given, along with some examples to demonstrate the feasibility of the approach.
