Within databases employed in various commercial sectors, anomalies continue to persist and hinder the overall integrity of data. Typically, Duplicate, Wrong and Missed observations of spatial-temporal data causes the user to be not able to accurately utilise recorded information. In literature, different methods have been mentioned to clean data which fall into the category of either deterministic and probabilistic approaches. However, we believe that to ensure the maximum integrity, a data cleaning methodology must have properties of both of these categories to effectively elimite the anomalies. To realise this, we have proposed a method which relies both on integrated deterministic and probabilistic classifiers using fusion techniques. We have empirically evaluated the proposed concept with state-of-the-art techniques and found that our approach improves the integrity of the resulting data set.
