Clustering Spatial Data in the Presence of Obstacles

Xin Wang and Howard J. Hamilton

Clustering is a form of unsupervised machine learning. In this paper, we proposed the DBRS_O method to identify clusters in the presence of intersected obstacles. Without doing any preprocessing, DBRS_O processes the constraints during clustering. DBRS_O can also avoid unnecessary computations when obstacles do not affect the clustering result. As well, DBRS_O can find clusters with arbitrary shapes, varying densities, and significant non-spatial attributes in large datasets.
