I think you are looking for "path planning" rather than clustering. The traveling salesman problem comes to mind If you want to use clustering to find the individual regions you should find the coordinates for each location with respect to some global frame. One example would be using Latitude and...

As cmdscale needs distances, try cmdscale(dist(points), eig = TRUE, k = 2). Symbols do not appear because of type = "n". For coloring text, use: text(x, y, rownames(points), cex = 0.6, col = centroids)

python,machine-learning,cluster-analysis

You could try some of the clustering methods, which belong to unsupervised machine learning. The result depends on your data and how distributed they are. According to your picture I think K-means algorithm could work. There is a python library for machine learning scikit-learn, which already contains k-means implementation: http://scikit-learn.org/stable/modules/clustering.html#k-means

The output of kmeans corresponds to the elements of the object passed as argument x. In your case, you omit the NA elements, and so $cluster indicates the cluster that each element of na.omit(x) belongs to. Here's a simple example: d <- data.frame(x=runif(100), cluster=NA) d$x[sample(100, 10)] <- NA clus <-...
