Exploration of Massive Crime Data Sets through Data Mining Techniques
We incorporate two data mining techniques, clustering and association-rule mining, into a fruitful exploratory tool for the discovery of spatio-temporal patterns in data-rich environments. This tool is an autonomous pattern detector that efficiently and effectively reveals plausible cause-effect associations among many geographical layers. We present two methods for exploratory analysis and detail algorithms to explore massive databases. We illustrate the algorithms with real crime data sets.
