Space Time Pattern Mining toolbox in ArcGIS 10.3
ESRI just released ArcGIS 10.3. The newly added Space Time Patter Mining toolbox seems very interesting.
The Space Time Pattern Mining toolbox has two tools: Create Space Time Cube and Emerging Hot Spot Analysis. Create Space Time Cube takes potentially very large point datasets and builds a multidimensional data structure for analysis.Emerging Hot Spot Analysis takes the space time cube data structure as input and identifies hot and cold spot trends. You might use Emerging Hot Spot Analysis to analyze crime data, for example, in order to locate new, intensifying, persistent, or sporadic hot spot patterns.
