Keywords: Stochastic process - Hidden Markov Models

Functional Description: The system CarottAge is based on Hidden Markov Models of second order and provides a non supervised temporal clustering algorithm for data mining and a synthetic representation of temporal and spatial data. CarottAge is currently used by INRA researchers interested in mining the changes in territories related to the loss of biodiversity (projects ANR BiodivAgrim and ACI Ecoger) and/or water contamination. CarottAge is also used for mining hydromorphological data. Actually a comparison was performed with three other algorithms classically used for the delineation of river continuum and CarottAge proved to give very interesting results for that purpose.
