Validation of clusters

How can I validate DBSCAN and hierarchical clustering results in Rapidminer?

Thanks in advance


Re: Validation of clusters

The implementation of the DBSCAN algorithm is supported in RapidMinerthrough the DBSCAN modeling operator. The DBSCAN operator accepts numeric and polynominal data set with provisions for user-specified ε (epsilon) and MinPoints parameters.


Hierarchical clustering: Hierarchical clustering is a process where a cluster hierarchy is created based on the distance between data points.The output of a hierarchal clustering is a dendrogam: a tree diagram that shows different clusters at any point of precision which is specified by the user.
