Abstract: As a key research area in data mining technologies, outlier detection can expose data inconsistent with the majority in the dataset and therefore is applicable in extensive areas. The addition of entropy weighting to the spatial local outlier measure (SLOM) and local distance-based outlier factor (LDOF) algorithms in outlier data mining, i.e., the adoption of entropy in the calculation of weighted distance is taken into consideration, leads to enhanced accuracy of outlier detection and produces more expense of time. The algorithm of entropy-weighted LDOF is more optimised than that of entropy-weighted SLOM in terms of detection accuracy. The superiority of the entropy-weighted algorithm is verified through experimental results.
