ABSTRACT
Plotting lots of geographical data points usually clutters up a map. In this paper, we propose an approach to provide a summary view of geographical data by efficiently clustering. We present a novel data structure, called Geo-tree, which is extended from quad tree, and then develop two algorithms, which use Geo-tree to cluster geographic data and visualize the clusters with a heat map-like representation. The experimental results show that our approach is very efficient in a large scale, compared to K-means and HAC, and the clustering results are comparable to theirs.
