I have a data set with historical information of some events (let's say event A and event B),these events describe the discovery of land mines, the coordinates of the event and the date of the event; is there a way I can use this historical information to predict points (coordinates) where event A or B could happen i.e. where might be still land mines that haven't been found?
Leaving aside the time aspect, you could do a cluster analysis on the event coordinates. If you use an algorithm that gives you a medoid (ie centre) of the clusters, you can then look at other points, and work out how close they are to the centres of the event clusters. It might be possible from this to predict which event could happen at those coordinates (which is the closest cluster medoid), and how likely it is (distance from the medoid).
This, however, depends very much on the shape of the data. If there is no discernible structure contained in it, then this will not work. But it is definitely worth trying.
