Abstract: DataMiner is an e-Infrastructure service providing state-of-the art Data Mining algorithms and ecological modelling approaches under the Web Processing Service (WPS) standard. This service aids in the application of statistical computing and data mining to a variety of biological and statistical related problems. Models hosted on Dataminer are distributed as-a-Service. Dataminer is able to exploit the heterogeneous resources offered by the D4Science e-Infrastructure to both retrieve and store data. The service allows users to import community developed algorithms, written in several programming languages (e.g. Fortran, R, Java, etc.) and is flexible in terms of algorithms plugability.
Through the WPS standard, Dataminer provides three main access servlets:
1. GetCapabilities - Allows a client to request and receive service metadata (Capabilities), which describe the algorithms supplied by the service. Such operation provides the name and the general description of each process;
2. DescribeProcess - Allows a client to request and receive detailed information about the processes that can run on the service instances. Information includes the input and the expected output.
3. Execute - Allows a client to run a process listed among the Capabilities.
