Generates artificial clumped data in two dimensions using (radial) 2D Gaussian distributions. Takes as input
  • number of clusters (int) 
  • edge length (double) the size of the  square that clusters will be placed in
  • number of points (int) - the total number of points to generate. If a generated point lies to the right of (EdgeLength,0) or above (EdgedLength,0) it is not returned. 
  • standard deviation (double) the radial standard deviation of the the clusters
The cluster centers are picked uniformly at random from within the square. Then, we for each point, with pick from the clusters uniformly at random, then draw from the distribution of that cluster, returning the result if it is within the square.
