The extraction of spatial patterns and characteristics, spatial and non spatial data relationships, and other data features hidden in the spatial database is spatial data mining. The necessity of advance methods for extraction of knowledge from spatial datasets has proved the need in rise of geographic knowledge discovery and spatial data mining as a dynamic research area. There is a dire requirement for productive and powerful techniques and methodology for mining valuable knowledge from spatial datasets of high dimension and unpredictable size. The paper highlights recent work in knowledge discovery and spatial data mining. We evaluated several literatures in characteristics of spatial data, common techniques in spatial data mining, techniques involved in spatial data mining and spatial association rule mining .The survey conclude with various outlooks on the significant work done in spatial data mining and recent research work in spatial association rule mining.
