Quantum GIS Based Descriptive and Predictive Data Analysis for Effective Planning of Waste Management

Waste has a direct impact on human health and the surrounding environment. Apart from the health aspect, many industries' growth is effected by waste material such as the food industry. Waste management authorities are interested in reducing the cost of waste management operations and searching for sustainable waste management solutions. For effective planning of waste management, reliable data analysis is required to produce results that can facilitate the planning process. Data mining and machine learning-based data analysis over the waste data can produce a more detailed, and in-time waste information generation, which can lead to effectively manage the waste amount of specific area. In this paper, a descriptive data analysis approach, along with predictive analysis, is used to produce in-time waste information. The performance of the proposed approach is evaluated using a real waste dataset of Jeju Island, South Korea. Waste bins are virtualized on its actual location on the Jeju map in Quantum Geographic Information Systems(QGIS) software. The performance results of the predictive analysis models are evaluated in terms of Mean Absolute Error(MAE), Root Mean Square Error (RMSE), and Mean Absolute Percentage Error(MAPE). Performance results indicate that predictive analysis models are reliable for the effective planning and optimization of waste management operations.
