With the rapid growth of the World Wide Web and the capacity of digital data storage, tremendous amount of data are generated daily from business and engineering to the Internet and science. The Internet, financial real-time data, hyperspectral imagery, and DNA microarrays are just a few of the common sources that feed torrential streams of data into scientific and business databases worldwide. Compared to statistical data sets with small size and low dimensionality, traditional clustering techniques are challenged by such unprecedented high volume, high dimensionality complex data. To meet these challenges, many new clustering algorithms have been proposed in the area of data mining (Han & Kambr, 2001).
