How to predict using support vector machine


How to predict using support vector machine

Hi. I am new here. I have dengue outbreak and 9 attributes of weather data. I am working on a project to predict dengue outbreak based on the weather data by using support vector machine. But I don't know the step to make this happen. I am very grateful if you can help me. Thank you.

Re: How to predict using support vector machine

The first question I have is do you have a label for your data set. My guess is that it would be "outbreak" and "no outbreak."  


The bigger question is if there is a time series componment to all this, for example is a series of days with temperature over 70F somehow correlated with an outbreak?
