Cluster validation is an important and necessary step in cluster analysis. This visual cluster validation tool CVAP based on GUI provides important tools and convenient analysis environment for validity evaluation of clustering solutions, estimation of the number of clusters and performance comparison between candidate clustering algorithms.
CVAP includes 4 External validity indices, 14 Internal validity indices and 5 clustering algorithms (K-means, PAM, hierarchical clustering and etc.). It supports other clustering algorithms via loading a solution file with class labels, or by adding new codes. And similarity metrics of Euclidean distance and Pearson correlation coefficient are supported.
