A model of artificial neural networks (ANNs) is presented in this paper to predict aftershock during the next five days after an earthquake occurrence in selected cluster of Indonesia with magnitude equal or larger than given threshold. The data were obtained from Indonesian Agency for Meteorological, Climatological and Geophysics (BMKG) and United States Geological Survey’s (USGS). Six clusters was an optimal number of cluster base-on cluster analysis implementing Valley Tracing and Hill Climbing algorithm, while Hierarchical K-means was applied for datasets clustering. A quality evaluation was then conducted to measure the proposed model performance for two different thresholds. The experimental result shows that the model gave better performance for predicting an aftershock occurrence that equal or larger than 6 Richter’s scale magnitude.
