Abstract

Data on the rainfall is compelling to study as it becomes one of the major factors affecting the weather in a certain region and various aspects of life as well. Generally, predicting rainfall is performed by analyzing data in the past in certain methods. Rainfall is prone to follow repeated pattern in sequence of time. The utilization of big data mining is expected to result in any valuable information that used to be unrevealed in the big data store. Some methods used in data mining are Apriori Algorithm and Improved Apriori Algorithm. Improved Apriori itself is to represent the database in the form of matrix to describe its relation in the database. Data used in this research is the rainfall factor in 2016 in Tanjungpinang city. Based on the test of Improved Apriori Algorithm, it was found out that the relation of the rainfall and weather factors utilizing 2 item sets, that is, if the temperature is low (24,0 - 26,0), the humidity is high (85 - 100), then the rainfall is mild. If the temperature is low (24,0 - 26,0), the light intensity is low (0 – 3), then the rainfall is heavy, and 3 item sets if the temperature is low (24,0 - 26,0), the humidity is high (85 - 100), the sun light intensity is low (0-3), then the rainfall is medium.
