The clustering algorithm plays an important role in data mining and image processing. The breakthrough of algorithm precision and method directly affects the direction and progress of the following research. At present, types of clustering algorithms are mainly divided into hierarchical, density-based, grid-based and model-based ones. This paper mainly studies the Clustering by Fast Search and Find of Density Peaks (CFSFDP) algorithm, which is a new clustering method based on density. The algorithm has the characteristics of no iterative process, few parameters and high precision. However, we found that the clustering algorithm did not consider the original topological characteristics of the data. We also found that the clustering data is similar to the social network nodes mentioned in DeepWalk, which satisfied power-law distribution. In this study, we tried to consider the topological characteristics of the graph in the clustering algorithm. Based on previous studies, we propose a clustering algorithm that adds the topological characteristics of original data on the basis of the CFSFDP algorithm. Our experimental results show that the clustering algorithm with topological features significantly improves the clustering effect and proves that the addition of topological features is effective and feasible.
