FCM is used for image segmentation in some applications. It is based on a specific distance norm and does not use spatial information of the image, so it has some drawbacks. Various kinds of improvements have been developed to extend the adaptability, such as BFCM, SFCM and KFCM. These methods extend FCM from two aspects, one is replacing the Euclidean norm, and the other is considering the spatial information constraints for clustering. Kernel distance can improve the robustness for

In this paper, Gaussian kernel-based fuzzy c-means algorithm with spatial information (KSFCM) is proposed. KSFCM is more robust and adaptive. The experiment results show that KSFCM has the better performance.
