Clustering is a core technique in many disciplines that assigns objects into similar groups. It provides answers for where, when and what objects are aggregated. As clustering becomes more important and popular, post-clustering activities that attempt to answer why they (what objects) are there (spatial) and/or then (temporal) need a great attention. This paper suggests a qualitative cluster reasoning framework for reasoning about clusters. Our proposed framework combines two post-clustering activities: cluster polygonization and qualitative spatial reasoning. Experimental results demonstrate that proposed qualitative cluster reasoning reveals interesting cluster structures and rich cluster relations.
