Due to the large amount of the collected scientific data, it is becoming increasingly difficult for scientists to comprehend and interpret the available data. Moreover typical queries on these data sets are in the nature of identifying (or visualizing) trends and surprises at a selected sub-region in multiple levels of abstraction rather than identifying information about a specific data point. The authors propose a versatile wavelet-based data structure, 2D TSA-tree (Trend and Surprise Abstractions Tree), to enable efficient multi-level trend detection on spatial data at different levels. We show how 2D TSA-tree can be utilized efficiently for sub-region selections. Moreover, 2D TSA-tree can be utilized to precompute the reconstruction error and retrieval time of a data subset in advance in order to allow the user to trade off accuracy for response time (or vice versa) at query time. Finally, when the storage space is limited, our 2D Optimal TSA-tree saves on storage by storing only a specific optimal subset of the tree. To demonstrate the effectiveness of our proposed methods, we evaluated our 2D TSA-tree using real and synthetic data. Our results show that our method outperformed other methods (DFT and SVD) in terms of accuracy, complexity and scalability
