Top: computer time required for FORD to classify subsets of the SDSS-DR7 galaxy spectrum catalog. Given the number of galaxies to be classified (in abscissa), the time when using k-means (the solid line) is systematically longer than the time for the alternative single pass k-means (the dashed line). The computer time increases linearly with the number of galaxies in the catalog. Error bars code the dispersion produced by the random initialization of the algorithms. Bottom: gain when using single pass k-means, which saves between 20% and 40% of the time.

Current usage metrics show cumulative count of Article Views (full-text article views including HTML views, PDF and ePub downloads, according to the available data) and Abstracts Views on Vision4Press platform.

Data correspond to usage on the plateform after 2015. The current usage metrics is available 48-96 hours after online publication and is updated daily on week days.

Initial download of the metrics may take a while.
