As the rapid development of high education informatization, it will be a new important research topic to con-duct the data mining and visual analytics to the existing data in the separated information systems. The existing campus information system is the integration of some business systems, so the system has some problems, such as it stores the data separately and it has poor ability to analyze data. In order to solve these problems, we pro-pose Model Driven Architecture (MDA) based campus data analysis and visualization framework. The frame-work is composed of multi-dimension data modeling, data extraction, visualization-based data exhibition, and some other modules. Data extraction solves the problem caused by separately stored data and heterogeneous data. Multi-dimension data modeling analysis and visualization enhances the analysis ability of existing system. Based on the idea of MDA modeling analysis, we provide a rapid develop platform of campus business for both business analyzers and developers.
