Event Details

SAIIE invites you to attend a free 2-hour webinar titled: An Introduction to Clustering Algorithms for geographical data and its applications in Data Analytics

Ever wondered which clustering method would be the best one to use to partition a geographical dataset? In this workshop we explore the basics of various clustering algorithms. Pros and cons of the different clustering families as well as their time complexity are explored in more depth. We also look at their applicability in Data Analytics and unsupervised learning.

Methods that will be discussed include:

  • Iterative partitioning
  • Hierarchical clustering
  • Density based clustering
  • Graph based clustering
  • Nearest Neighbour clustering

This webinar is validated for 0.2 CPD credits. A CPD certificate will be issued only to current active SAIIE members and professionally registered members from other Voluntary Associations who attend this online engagement after verification of attendance via the event platform's check-in and check-out status of each attendee.
