Agglomerative Clustering - Linkage Output/Matrix

btibertbtibert Member, University Professor Posts: 146 Guru
When using agglomerative clustering, is it possible to extract or review the linkage schedule?  That is, how the records/clusters are joined and the distance (penalty) for each linkage?   

I know that we can flatten the clusters to apply the cluster solution on top of our exampleset, but I am looking to dive deeper into the solution "fit" for this type of clustering approach.

For example, when using python and scipy, we have access the linkage matrix:  https://docs.scipy.org/doc/scipy/reference/generated/scipy.cluster.hierarchy.linkage.html#scipy-cluster-hierarchy-linkage
