This paper presents experimental results on the utilization of fuzzy clustering as a discretization technique for purpose of solar images recognition. By extracting texture features from our solar images, and consequently applying fuzzy clustering techniques on these features, we were able to determine what clustering algorithm and what algorithm's initialization parameters produced the best data discretization. Based on these results we discretized some of our texture features and ran them on two different classifiers comparing how well the classifiers performed on our original data versus the discretized data. Our experimental results demonstrate that discretization of our data via fuzzy clustering carries significant potential since on our classifiers produced similar results on the original and the discretized data, and the reduction of storage space achieved through cluster-based discretization has been very significant.
