Spatial-temporal DBSCAN

Project description


Simple and effective method for spatial-temporal clustering

st_dbscan is an open-source software package for the spatial-temporal clustering of movement data:

  • Implemnted using numpy and sklearn
  • Scales to memory - using chuncking sparse matrices and the st_dbscan.fit_frame_split


The easiest way to install st_dbscan is by using pip :

pip install st-dbscan

How to use

from st_dbscan import ST_DBSCAN

st_dbscan = ST_DBSCAN(eps1 = 0.05, eps2 = 10, min_samples = 5)
  • Demo Notebook: the following noteboook shows a demo of common features in this package - see Jupyter Notebook
