In this survey paper we have consolidated all the current data mining standards. We have categorized them in to process standards, XML standards, standard APIs, web standards and grid standards and discussed them in considerable detail. We have also designed an application using these standards. We later also analyze the standards their influence on data mining application development and later point out areas in the data mining application development that need to be standardized. We also talk about the trend in the focus areas addressed by these standards. Data Mining Standards
