However, you could create a "clustergram":

@article{schonlau:2002,

	Author = {Schonlau, Matthias},
	Journal = {The Stata Journal},
	Pages = {316-327},
	Title = {The clustergram: A graph for visualizing hierarchical and
non-hierarchical cluster analyses},
	Volume = {3},
	Year = {2002},
        Url = {http://www.schonlau.net/clustergram.html}
}
