In this paper, we propose the index structure supporting the future position retrievals with efficiently updating continuous positions of moving objects in location based services. For reducing update costs of moving objects, our index structure directly accesses to the leaf node with moving objects using secondary index structure and performs bottom up update when node information is changed. Positions of moving objects are stored in primary index structure. In primary index structure, the split information similar to kd-tree is stored to internal node for increasing node's fanout. And the proposed index structure supports the future position retrievals using velocity of moving objects in the child node.
