Gap Analysis for Determining K-mean Clustering
University of Maryland College Park (iSchool)
The code is to determine K in K-mean clustering using the gap analysis method. The original code was developed by DataScienceLab (https://datasciencelab.wordpress.com/2013/12/27/finding-the-k-in-k-means-clustering/).
Since the original code was (1) targeting only 2-tuple vectors; and (2) not maintaining vector IDs to track the data. My modified implementation tackled these two issues.
There are two sets of functions to include vector IDs: with and without a prefix "new_". If a function begins with "new_", that function is for maintaining IDs. If not, the fuction does not maintain vector IDs. The functions work well with n-dimensional vectors as well.
Feel free to use/modify the code. Any questions? (email@example.com)
