Data Structures for Spatial Data Mining
by Petr Kuba, September 2001, 22 pages.
This report deals with spatial data structures for indexing and with their usability for knowledge discovery in spatial data. Huge amount of data processed in spatial data mining (or in data mining generally) requires using some indexing structures to speed up the mining process. Typical data types and operations used in geographic information systems are described in this paper. Then basic spatial data mining tasks and some spatial data mining systems are introduced. Finally, indexing spatial structures for both vector and metric spaces are described and structures used in some spatial data mining systems are presented.
