Spatio-temporal heterogeneous data is the database for decision-making in many fields, and checking its accuracy can provide data support for making decisions. Due to the randomness, complexity, global and local correlation of spatiotemporal heterogeneous data in the temporal and spatial dimensions, traditional detection methods can not guarantee both detection speed and accuracy. Therefore, this article proposes a method for detecting the accuracy of spatiotemporal heterogeneous data by fusing graph convolution and temporal convolution networks. Firstly, the geographic weighting function is introduced and improved to quantify the degree of association between nodes and calculate the weighted adjacency value to simplify the complex topology. Secondly, design spatiotemporal convolutional units based on graph convolutional neural networks and temporal convolutional networks to improve detection speed and accuracy. Finally, the proposed method is compared with three methods, ARIMA, T-GCN, and STGCN, in real scenarios to verify its effectiveness in terms of detection speed, detection accuracy and stability. The experimental results show that the RMSE, MAE, and MAPE of this method are the smallest in the cases of simple connectivity and complex connectivity degree, which are 13.82/12.08, 2.77/2.41, and 16.70/14.73, respectively. Also, it detects the shortest time of 672.31/887.36, respectively. In addition, the evaluation results are the same under different time periods of processing and complex topology environment, which indicates that the detection accuracy of this method is the highest and has good research value and application prospects.
