This paper presents a mining system for extracting patterns from Satellite Image Time Series. This system is a fully-fledged tool comprising four main modules for pre-processing, pattern extraction, pattern ranking and pattern visualization. It is based on the extraction of grouped frequent sequential patterns and on swap randomization.
