Abstract: This paper proposes a novel clustering methodology which undeniably manages to offer results with a higher inter-cluster inertia for a better clustering. The advantage obtained with this methodology is due to an algorithm that showed beforehand its efficiency in clustering exercises, MC- DBSCAN, which is associated to an iterative process with a potential of auto-adjustment of the weights of the pertinent criteria that allows the reclassification of objects of the two closest clusters through each iteration, as well as the aptitude of the auto-evaluation of the precision of the clustering during the clustering process. This work conducts the experiments using the well-known benchmark, ‘Seismic’, ‘Landform-Identification’ and ‘Image Segmentation’, to compare the performance of the proposed methodology with other algorithms (K-means, EM, CURE and MC-DBSCAN). The experimental results demonstrate that the proposed solution has good quality of clustering results.
