A Database for Data Mining Applications in Astronomy

McConnell, Sabine

Data Mining is defined as the extraction of novel information from large datasets. Astronomy was one of the earliest application areas for data mining, which has now been demonstrated by two decades of successful applications. These applications span a large variety of techniques and problem settings, and resulted in publications beyond astronomical journals. This makes the compilation of related work non-trivial. The database currently contains over 500 publications and is designed to serve as a tool which enables searches using standard features such as author, year published or keywords contained in the title.
