Abstract

Validation is an important aspect of clustering, but is often overlooked. The existing cluster validity measures are often inadequate for practical applications. Inability to incorporate existing domain knowledge is a primary deficiency. We have proposed a measure which models the domain knowledge in the form of existing delineations, often available from legacy. The effectiveness of the measure in a practical problem is demonstrated.
