Abstract. Numerical approaches for representing and reasoning about
information are ineffective when the data is too imprecise or uncertain. People
on the other hand cope very effectively with vague information in daily life.
This has motivated the field of qualitative spatiotemporal reasoning (QSTR),
which focuses on coarse, qualitative distinctions between spatial and temporal
entities and relations. A substantial body of work has emerged from the QSTR
community, however, serious difficulties prevent a uniform and general
qualitative treatment of data representing space and time. Without unifying
