Cruising route recommendation based on trajectory mining can improve taxidrivers' income and reduce energy consumption. However, existing methods mostly recommend pick-up points for taxis only. Moreover, their performance is not good enough since there lacks a good evaluation model for the pick-up points. Therefore, we propose an entropy-based model for recommendation of taxis' cruising route. Firstly, we select more positional attributes from historical pick-up points in order to obtain accurate spatial-temporal features. Secondly, the information entropy of spatial-temporal features is integrated in the evaluation model. Then it is applied for getting the next pick-up points and further recommending a series of successive points. These points are constructed a cruising route for taxi-drivers. Experimental results show that our method is able to obviously improve the recommendation accuracy of pick-up points, and help taxi-drivers make profitable benefits more than before.
