Towards a Better Understanding of Human Caused Wildfire in Colorado with Spatial Data Mining
This study investigated the circumstances of human caused wildfire from 1992-2015 within Colorado’s Forested Mountain and North American Desert eco-regions using spatial data mining. This process successfully extracted the associations amongst human caused wildfire variables by utilizing the Apriori data mining algorithm while allowing various spatial predicates to present complex iterative behaviors of variables across space. This research also examined changes in the spatial associations between three time periods, 1992-1999, 2000-2007, and 2008-2015. The findings were compared against existing ...
