As part of my Cadetship at Spatial Vision, I designed and delivered an R&D project. After plenty of research, I chose to explore KNIME’s functionality, and how it can be applied within Spatial Vision. KNIME is a workflow based data transformation, analysis and deployment program.  Developed in Java using Eclipse as a free open source program, users are able to modify the base code of the program to suite their individual needs, allowing the creation of plugins to expand the functionality of KNIME.
