Density-based spatial clustering of applications with noise (DBSCAN) is a data clustering algorithm proposed by Martin Ester, Hans-Peter Kriegel, Jörg Sander and Xiaowei Xu in 1996.In 2014, the algorithm was awarded the test of time prize (an prize given to algorithms which have received substantial attention in theory and practice) at the leading data mining conference, ACM SIGKDD. In 1972, Robert F. Ling published a closely related algorithm in" The theory and construction of K-Clusters" in The computer Journal with an estimated runtime complexity of O(n³).DBSCAN has a worst-case of O(n²), and the database-oriented range-query formulation of DBSCAN lets for index acceleration. The algorithms slightly differ in their handling of border points.
