It is necessary to classify numerical values of spatial data when representing them on a map and visually understanding it. In consequence, loss of information from original data is inevitable in the process of this classification. A gate loss of information might lead to a misunderstanding of the nature of original data. In this study, a classification method of spatial data is proposed, in which the loss of information is minimized. Comparing our method with other existing classification methods, some new findings are shown.
