We introduce a Self-Organizing Map (SOM) based visualization method that compares cluster structures in temporal datasets using Relative Density SOM (ReDSOM) visualization. Our method, combined with a distance matrix-based visualization, is capable of visually identifying emerging clusters, disappearing clusters, enlarging clusters, contracting clusters, the shifting of cluster centroids, and changes in cluster density. For example, when a region in a SOM becomes significantly more dense...[Show more]
