As sensors become ubiquitous, a set of broad requirements is beginning to emerge across high-priority applications including disaster preparedness and management, adaptability to climate change, national or homeland security, and the management of critical infrastructures. This book presents innovative solutions in offline data mining and real-time analysis of sensor or geographically distributed data. It discusses the challenges and requirements for sensor data based knowledge discovery solutions in high-priority application illustrated with case studies. It explores the fusion between heterogeneous data streams from multiple sensor types and applications in science, engineering, and security.
