Abstract: The paper presents an improvement to the Scatter Search algorithm. The improvement is achieved by adding some of Bees Algorithm concepts to the Scatter Search algorithm. These concepts provided Scatter Search algorithm with more of exploration for problem search space and intensification for promising solutions. The original and improved Scatter Search algorithms have been tested on local 4-Colour Mapping problem instances and the results have been reported. The computational results illustrate that the improved Scatter Search algorithm is better than the original Scatter Search algorithm.
