Spatio-temporal data mining is an emerging area with increasing importance in a variety of applications, such as homeland security, mobile services, surveillance systems, and health monitoring applications. However, mining in spatio-temporal databases is still in its infancy. Existing work on spatio-temporal data mining has mainly focused on three types of patterns: evolution patterns of natural phenomena, frequent movements of objects over time, and space-time clusters. While there has been much research on association rule mining on transactional, spatial, and temporal data, there is little literature on finding interesting associations in spatio-temporal data. In this chapter, we introduce the early attempts at spatio-temporal data mining and review the techniques to discover various interesting spatio-temporal patterns. This is followed by a review of the traditional association rules mining algorithms and their variants on transactional data, temporal data, and spatial data.
