Decennial) census. In this case there will be a three-way matrix which could be described by three dimensions, concerning n statistical units, p statistical variables and q times. Another important case is data related to different geographic areas. Here too there is a three-way matrix with space as the third dimension, for example, the sales of a company in different regions or the satellite surveys of the environmental characteristics of different regions. In both these cases, data mining should be accompanied by specific methods from time series analysis (Chatfield, 1996) or from spatial data analysis (Cressie, 1991).

Despite the fact that most of the data related to the flow of users is very coarse and very simple, it gives detailed 22 APPLIED DATA MINING information about how internet users surf the net. This huge and undisciplined source can be transferred to the data webhouse, where it can be put together with more conventional sources of data that previously formed the data warehouse. Another change concerns the way in which the data warehouse can be accessed. It is now possible to exploit all the interfaces of the business data warehouse that already exist through the web just by using the browser.
