RapidMiner is one of the most used frontend for data mining, modelling and analysis. RapidMiner enable the user to design data processing tool chain interactively. A tool chain is flow chart of processing tools represented by boxes in the interface. This software is easily extendable by designing Plugins. The GeoImageRMP plugins is a plugin dedicated to the design of tool chain to process georeference images (raster and vector images). It is a practical and useful reponds to the analytic tasks of georeferenced data. This is the first plugins that is interested in including georeferenced data in RapidMiner and although the only userfriendly tool to create and compare geoereferenced data tool chains. It benefits from the large amount of data processing tools that are already implemented in RapidMiner (classification, clustering, frequent pattern mining, etc.). One of the main aims of this plugin is to quickly prototype machine learning tools chain for remote sensing classification task. The GeoImageRMP plugin provide several new processing boxes:

The geo-processing are supported by the open source (LGPL) GeoTools API. This API is OGC compliant. Our processes include management of heterogenous Spatial Reference Systems (SRS).
