Spatial data mining is the process of extracting interesting knowledge from spatial databases. Spatial data mining methods can be applied to extract interesting and regular knowledge from large spatial databases. This knowledge can be used for understanding spatial and non-spatial data and their relationships. This knowledge is very useful in Geographic Information Systems (GISs), image processing, remote sensing and so on. Spatial data mining encompasses various tasks and, for each task, a number of different methods are often available, whether computational, statistical, visual, or some combination of them.
