A Programmatic Implementation of the Visual Assessment of Cluster Tendency Algorithm in R

In cluster analysis, the partitioning algorithms require a priori estimate of number of clusters (c) as an input parameter, and thus the success of partitioning depends mostly on this parameter. In order to find an optimal c, the obtained results are checked by the various cluster validity indices a...
