An Efficient Clustering Technique for Reassignment of Isolated Regions

Vol. 6  No. 10  pp. 48-52


Fuzzy C-Means (FCM) clustering is a popular technique used in image segmentation and pattern recognition. However one of the main problems with FCM clustering is the lack of spatial context. That is FCM often fails with irregularly shaped clusters. This can lead to the creation of isolated regions; isolated regions are those regions that are not connected with the main body of the clusters. We propose a post-processing technique whereby these misclassified regions are identified and reassigned to their proper clusters
