Density-Based Spatial Clustering (DBSCAN) with Python Code

DBSCAN (Density-Based Spatial Clustering of Applications with Noise) is a data clustering algorithm It is a density-based clustering algorithm because it finds a number of clusters starting from the estimated density distribution of corresponding nodes.

It starts with an arbitrary starting point that has not been visited.

This point’s epsilon-neighborhood is retrieved, and if it contains sufficiently many points, a cluster is started. Then, a new unvisited point is retrieved and processed, leading to the discovery of a further cluster or noise. DBSCAN requires two parameters: epsilon (eps) and the minimum number of points required to form a cluster (minPts). If a point is found to be part of a cluster, its epsilon-neighborhood is also part of that cluster.

I implemented the pseudo code from DBSCAN wiki page:

 

Blue dots are actual data, red are noise and yellow are discovered clusters.
