Modification of GTD from Flat File Format to OLAP for Data Mining
Application of Data Mining Tools for Terror Data Mining is a lesser talked about field. Lot of research efforts are going into capturing the data from incident reports in the past and structuring the data for analysis. Unfortunately there are not many sources on the net. One such database available in a single tabular form is an Open Source Terrorism Incident events Database called Global Terrorism Database (GTD). This covers terrorism incidents around the world from 1970 through 2008 (with continuing annual updates). It includes systematic data on US, as well as transnational and international terrorist incidents that have occurred during this time period and as on now includes more than 87,000 cases.
