Soil Science/BIRCH Clustering Example

Input Data

The input data:

The input file looks like:
39 1 6
45 1 6
50 1 6


We want to view the results of clustering by BIRCH to refine the clustering parameters until the clustering is satisfactory.

The visualization is created as follows:

  1. Define the 'Image Display' window. This window simply displays each record as a small rectangle of the specified color at the specified location. The color is determined by the cluster into which BIRCH put that record (green is leaves, blue is branches, etc.).


The clusters can be thought of as summaries of the underlying data. It is important that the connection between the summaries and the underlying data is preserved by DEVise.
