Fselector: Variable selection using visual features

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


Visual representation of large datasets should allow us to focus on essential dimensions when restricted to limited visual space. This paper presents an approach for abstracting multi-dimensional data with a focus on grouping the individual attributes based on visual features (or Scagnostics) such as density, skewness, shape, outliers, and texture. Working directly with these visual characterizations, we propose a prototype, called FSelector, to guide users when interactively exploring high dimensional datasets. In particular, selected (leading) variables are organized in a grid layout, allowing users to rapidly identify interesting pairs of variables and to focus on analyzing the original variables directly.
