Background: The availability of Spatial Data which is a part of GIS is growing day by day in an exponential manner. This high availability of data is throwing challenges to the research community to analyze and draw effective conclusions. The Present Study aims at requirement for effective analysis and to draw Conclusions. Methods/Statistical Analysis: Spatial Analysis requires logical relationships between attribute data and map features.Spatial data Analysis is not a simple single task it requires complex procedures in which combinational techniques namely Hybrid techniques are required for effective analysis. Mathematics and statistics are the fundamentals to spatial data analytics. In this paper, a realistic Spatial crime data set was considered for analysis. It involves different types of data mining Techniques like Clustering, Classification and Association rule mining techniques apart from Hybrid techniques. These hybrid Data mining Techniques were applied using R. Findings: The Hybrid Data Mining techniques with K-means Clustering and J48 Decision Tree Algorithm was developed and Applied for the enhancement of accuracy. Association Rule generation Apriori algorithm was applied on the resultant K-means clustered data set. The application of 3D visualization techniques also made for further analysis. Applications/Improvements: It is essentially required to analyze these complex spatial data sets effectively. So there is a need of hybrid Spatial Data Mining Techniques requirement for effective analysis and to draw Conclusions.
