Abstract

The purpose of this article is to provide an overview and evaluation of spatial clustering techniques, identifying the strengths and weaknesses of the most widely applied approaches. Results suggest that performance varies significantly in terms of accuracy, sensitivity, and computational expense. This is noteworthy because the misidentification of clusters, whether false positives or false negatives, has the potential to bias not only hypothesis formulation but also pragmatic facets of policy, process, and planning efforts within a region
