Top Frequency Based Parallel Coordinateshttp://mloss.orgUpdates and additions to Top Frequency Based Parallel CoordinatesenTue, 05 Sep 2017 05:49:41 -0000Top Frequency Based Parallel Coordinates 1.0.0<html><p>Parallel coordinates plotting is one of the most popular methods for multivariate visualization. However, when applied to larger data sets, there tends to be a "black screen problem," with the screen becoming so cluttered and full that patterns are difficult or impossible to discern. Xie and Matloff (2014) proposed remedying this problem by plotting only the most frequently-appearing patterns, with frequency defined in terms of nonparametrically estimated multivariate density. This approach displays "typical" patterns, which may reveal important insights for the data. However, this remedy does not cover variables that are discrete or categorical. An alternate method, still frequency-based, is presented here for such cases. We discretize all continuous variables, retaining the discrete/categorical ones, and plot the patterns having the highest counts in the dataset. In addition, we propose some novel approaches to handling missing values in parallel coordinates settings. </p></html>norm matloff, vincent yang, harrison nguyenTue, 05 Sep 2017 05:49:41 -0000
