Integration of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and Spatial Data Mining Techniques in Fight against Boko Haram Terrorist in Nigeria

Idhoko K.E, Ojaiko J.C

A GIS is a computer system capable of capturing, storing, analyzing, and displaying geographically referenced information. GIS works by relating information from different sources. The power of a GIS comes from the ability to relate different information in a spatial context and to reach a conclusion about this relationship. Most of the information we have about terrorism today is locational base and can be reference to a spatial location. Spatial data play a very important role in the fight against insurgent and terrorism. The integration of Geographic information systems (GIS) and spatial data mining technique will greatly help the Nigerian military and other security agency to classify and predict likely terrorist hit spots. The goal of the integration is to accurately predict the targets of Boko Haram Terrorists in Nigeria. GIS and spatial Data mining technique have been applied in a wide interdisciplinary research area spanning several disciplines such as expert system, database system, statistic, security modeling, environmental studies and intelligent information systems. The goal of this paper is to presents the integration of Geographical information systems (GIS) and Spatial Data Mining Techniques in Fight against Boko Haram Terrorist in Nigeria
