SOM_CLSTRUCT Create a clustering struct or set its field values. sC = som_clstruct(Z, [argID, value, ...]) Z = linkage(pdist(sM.codebook)); sC = som_clstruct(Z); sC = som_clstruct(sC,'coord',som_vis_coords(lattice,msize)); sC = som_clstruct(sC,'color',som_colorcode(sM)); sC = som_clstruct(sC,'base',sC.base(som_bmus(sM,sD))); Input and output arguments ([]'s are optional): Z (matrix) size clen-1 x 3, where clen is the number of base clusters. This is a clustering matrix similar to that produced by LINKAGE in Statistical Toolbox. See SOM_LINKAGE. (struct) clustering struct (as produced by this function) [argID, (string) See below. Each pair is the fieldname and value] (varies) the value to be given to that field. sC (struct) clustering struct The clustering struct is based on the assumption that there is a base partitioning of the SOM (or data) which is saved in the .base field of the struct. Then a hierarchical clustering is applied to this base partitioning. The results are saved to .tree field of the struct. Each cluster (base and combined) has also three properties: height, coordinate and color, which are used in the visualizations. The fields of the struct are: .type (string) 'som_clustering' .name (string) Identifier for the clustering. .tree (matrix) Size clen-1 x 3, as argument Z above. .base (vector) Size dlen x 1, the basic groups of data forming the base clusters, e.g. as a result of partitive clustering. Allowed values are 1:clen indicating the base cluster to which the data belongs to. NaN indicating that the data has been ignored in the clustering By default [1:clen]. .height (vector) Size 2*clen-1 x 1, (clustering) height for each cluster. By default 0 for each base cluster and .tree(:,3) for the others. .coord (matrix) Size 2*clen-1 x *, coordinate for each cluster, By default the coordinates are set so that the base clusters are ordered on a line, and the position of each combined cluster is average of the base clusters that constitute it. .color (matrix) Size 2*clen-1 x 3, color for each cluster. By default the colors are set so that the base clusters are ordered on a line, like above, and then colors are assigned from the 'hsv' colormap to the base clusters. The color of each combined cluster is average as above. Height, coord and color can also be specified in alternate forms: 'height' (vector) size 2*clen-1 x 1, if given explicitly size clen-1 x 1, specified heights of the combined clusters (the base cluster heights are all = 0) size 0 x 0, default value is used 'coord' (matrix) size 2*clen-1 x *, if given explicitly size clen x *, to give coordinates for base clusters; the coordinate of combined clusters are averaged from these size dlen x *, to give coordinates of the original data: the cluster coordinates are averaged from these based on base clusters size 0 x 0, default value is used 'color' (matrix) as 'coord' See also SOM_CLPLOT, SOM_CLVALIDITY, SOM_CLGET, SOM_CLLINKAGE.
