Project - Summary


The objective of this project is to develop a framework for hotspot analysis. To accomplish this, we (a) created a new approach to detect hotspots from point data, (b) developed a MapReduce approach to improve scalability of hotspot detection, © created a new ensemble-based approach to hotspot prediction and (d) designed a MapReduce framework for ensemble-based prediction.

Project - Impact and Uses/Benefits

Early hotspots detection and precise prediction are important in many disciplines. This project provides scalable spatio-temporal hotspot detection and prediction approaches which are well engineered for big data. The approaches are general and can be applied in various application domains with minimal customizations.

This system can be beneficial in several applications such as epidemiology, public health, law enforcement, anti-terrorism, marketing (Merging markets, cross selling, and advertisement optimization), etc.
