|Title||A dynamic method for discovering density varied clusters|
Density-based spatial clustering of applications with noise (DBSCAN) is a base algorithm for density based clustering. It can find out the clusters of different shapes and sizes from a large amount of data, which is containing noise and outliers. However, it fails to handle the local density variation that exists within the cluster. Thus, a good clustering method should allow a significant density variation within the cluster because, if we go for homogeneous clustering, a large number of smaller unimportant clusters may be generated. In this paper an enhancement of DBSCAN algorithm is proposed, which detects the clusters of different shapes, sizes that differ in local density. We introduce new algorithm Dynamic Method DBSCAN (DMDBSCAN). It selects several values of the radius of a number of objects (Eps) for different densities according to a k-dist plot. For each value of Eps, DBSCAN algorithm is adopted in order to make sure that all the clusters with respect to the corresponding density are clustered. For the next process, the points that have been clustered are ignored, which avoids marking both denser areas and sparser ones as one cluster. Experimental results are obtained from artificial data sets and UCI real data sets. The final results show that our algorithm get a good results with respect to the original DBSCAN and DVBSCAN algorithms.
