The process demonstrates how to import data from CSV
files using the
Read CSV and the
operators. In the experiment we use a real-time earthquake data feed
provided by USGS in CSV format.
First, we download the feed to able to import it into RapidMiner using the
Import Configuration Wizard of the
operator. The wizard guides the user step by step through the import process
and helps him to set the parameters of the operator correctly. After the
local copy of the feed is successfully imported into RapidMiner, we can
switch to the live feed adding the

The United States Geological Survey (or USGS for short) provides real time earthquake data feeds at the Earthquake Hazards Program website. Data is available in various formats, including CSV. The experiment uses the feed of the magnitude 1+ earthquakes in the past 30 days in CSV format from the URL http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/feed/v1.0/csv.php. The feed is updated in every 15 minutes.
