In this paper we develop a framework for the support of temporal data. The concept of a time sequence is introduced, and shown to be an important fundamental concept for representing the semantics of temporal data and for efficient physical organization. We discuss properties of time sequences that allow the treatment of such sequences in a uniform fashion. These properties are exploited in order to design efficient physical data structures and access methods for time sequences. We also describe operations over time sequences, and show their power to manipulate temporal data.
