The progress of data-collection technology, such as bar-code scanners
commercial domains and sensors in scientific and industrial domains,
generates massive amounts of data. This explosive growth in data
generates the need for new techniques and tools that can intelligently
and automatically transform the data into useful information and
Data mining, also referred to as knowledge discovery in databases
is a process of nontrivial extraction of implicit, previous unknown
and potentially useful information (such as knowledge rules, constrains,
regularities) from data in databases. Various data mining techniques
been proposed, including association rule mining, classification,
etc. Data mining techniques have been applied to many areas, such as
basket data, web data, DNA data, text data, and spatial data.
Extracting interesting patterns and rules from spatial datasets, such
as remotely sensed imagery and associated ground data, can be of
in precision agriculture, community planning, resource discovery and
areas. However, in most cases the image data sizes are too large to be
mined in a reasonable amount of time using existing algorithms. In this
seminar, we will introduce approaches to perform efficient and effective
data mining (including association rule mining, classification, and
clustering) on spatial data using Peano Count Tree (P-tree) structure.
P-tree structure facilitates significant pruning techniques and proves
to be a promising approach to spatial data mining.
