Calculcate scagnostics for pairs of variables

Description

Scagnostics (scatterplot diagnostics) summarize potentially interesting patterns in 2d scatterplots.

Usage

scagnostics(x, ...)
scagnosticsOutliers(scagnostics)
scagnosticsExemplars(scagnostics)
scagnosticsGrid(scagnostics)

Arguments

x

object to calculate scagnostics on: a vector, a matrix or a data.frame

...

...

scagnostics

objects returned from the scagnostics function

Value

scagnostics returns a vector (for a pair) or a matrix consisting of scagnostics (rows) by variable pairs (columns).

scagnostics.outliers and scagnostics.exemplars return a logical vector.

scagnostics.grid returns a data frame with columns x and y which as a pair define the index of variables corresponding to the entries in the scagnostics matrix. Hence it has as many rows as there are columns in the scagnostics matrix and each row defines one pair of variables.

Examples

# tesing various forms
scagnostics(1:10, 1:10)
scagnostics(rnorm(100), rnorm(100))
scagnostics(as.matrix(mtcars))

# more real use on a dataset
s <- scagnostics(mtcars)

# look at outliers
o <- scagnosticsOutliers(s)
o[o]
# one outlier, let's plot it
g <- scagnosticsGrid(s)
go <- g[o,]
plot(mtcars[[go$x]], mtcars[[go$y]], pch=19,
     xlab=names(mtcars)[go$x], ylab=names(mtcars)[go$y])

# find and plot exemplars
e <- scagnosticsExemplars(s)
e[e]
ge <- g[e,]
par(mfrow = c(2,2))
for (i in 1:dim(ge)[1])
  plot(mtcars[[ge$x[i]]], mtcars[[ge$y[i]]], pch=19,
       xlab=names(mtcars)[ge$x[i]], ylab=names(mtcars)[ge$y[i]])
