Michael Schilmoeller is presenting on cluster analysis in R for our November meetup! Note that due to proximity with Thanksgiving, this meetup has been scheduled for a Tuesday instead of a Wednesday.
Cluster Analysis in R
We will present two applications of the Agnes cluster analysis package. The first will illustrate considerations in selecting a distance metric. The second will show a technique for evaluating the size and number of clusters appropriate for representing data. Both examples are from electric power generation and transmission modeling.
