Data mining, or knowledge discovery in databases, refers to the discovery of interesting, implicit, and previously unknown knowledge from large databases. Spatial data mining presents new challenges due to the large size of spatial data, the complexity of spatial data types, and the special nature of spatial access methods. Spatial data mining is the task of unfolding the knowledge hidden in the spatial databases. By collecting spatial data i.e. patients' data, the authors analyze, predict and interpret the data to the health organizations for conducting Campaigns.
