Abstract

Our proposed method used to overcome the drawbacks of computing values parameters in the mountain algorithm to image clustering. All existing clustering algorithms are required values of parameters to starting the clustering process such as these algorithms have a big problem in computing parameters. One of the famous clustering is a mountain algorithm that gives expected number of clusters, we presented in this paper a new modification of mountain clustering called Spatial Modification in the Parameters of Mountain Image Clustering Algorithm. This modification in the spatial information of image by taking a window mask for each center pixel value to compute distance between pixel and neighborhood for estimation the values of parameters σ, β that gives a potential optimum number of clusters requiring in image segmentation process. Our experiments show ability the proposed algorithm in image brain segmentation with a quality in the large data sets
