Abstract
An abundance of GIS and Remote Sensing based spatial analysis studies result in various types of suitability maps, where selected regions are classified according to application driven qualitative or quantitative rules. Often, upon the resulting classified regions which define spatially constrained classes, users intent to position facilities in order to satisfy a series of demand sites spread throughout the study area. This fine tuning procedure, not tackled under classic clustering and location analysis algorithms, is addressed through the extension of k-means algorithm, by restricting cluster centers inside a priori outlined regions, while minimizing distance metrics towards demand locations. Experimentation in both synthetic and real based datasets shows the applicability of the approach and demonstrates the overall performance of the algorithm.
