Dendrogram is the visual representation of arrangement of the clusters. Learn how to create dendrogram in a few steps.

A dendrogram looks like a tree chart. It is composed of an X-Y axis and several clusters. The vertical axis is labelled distance and refers to the distance between clusters. The horizontal axis represents the numbers of objects.
