Data Warehouses are a good source of data for downstream data mining applications. New data arrives in data warehouses during the periodic refresh cycles. Appending of data on existing data requires that all patterns discovered earlier using various data mining algorithms are updated with each refresh. In this paper, the authors present an incremental density based clustering algorithm. Incremental DBSCAN is an existing incremental algorithm in which data can be added/deleted to/from existing clusters, one point at a time.
