A recent delve into research about the data mining life cycle led me to CRISP-DM (that’s “CRoss Industry Standard Process for Data Mining”), a gold-standard process method published in 1999 (v1.0). CRISP-DM is the backbone of the data mining field, and a ten-year standard (v2.0 is in the works) is amazing considering technology’s evolution since 1999.
Although CRISP-DM v1.0 includes a few diagrams, it is absent a comprehensive visual overview. After a fruitless search for a single document showing all the steps of the process, I designed a visual guide to CRISP-DM methodology.
If you find my visual guide useful, I’d love to hear about it. Also, please feel free to make suggestions for improvements – I plan to update the design as needed.
Happy data mining!
