2 What is data exploration? A preliminary exploration of the data to better understand its characteristics. Key motivations of data exploration include Helping to select the right tool for preprocessing or analysis Making use of humans abilities to recognize patterns People can recognize patterns not captured by data analysis tools Related to the area of Exploratory Data Analysis (EDA) Created by statistician John Tukey Seminal book is Exploratory Data Analysis by Tukey A nice online introduction can be found in Chapter 1 of the NIST Engineering Statistics Handbook
3 Techniques Used In Data Exploration In EDA, as originally defined by Tukey The focus was on visualization Clustering and anomaly detection were viewed as exploratory techniques In data mining, clustering and anomaly detection are major areas of interest, and not thought of as just exploratory In our discussion of data exploration, we focus on Summary statistics Visualization Online Analytical Processing (OLAP)
4 Iris Sample Data Set Many of the exploratory data techniques are illustrated with the Iris Plant data set. Can be obtained from the UCI Machine Learning Repository From the statistician Douglas Fisher Three flower types (classes): Setosa Virginica Versicolour Four (non-class) attributes Sepal width and length Petal width and length Virginica.

5 Summary Statistics Summary statistics are numbers that summarize properties of the data Summarized properties include frequency, location and spread Examples: location - mean spread - standard deviation Most summary statistics can be calculated in a single pass through the data
6 Frequency and Mode The frequency of an attribute value is the percentage of time the value occurs in the data set For example, given the attribute gender and a representative population of people, the gender female occurs about 50% of the time. The mode of a an attribute is the most frequent attribute value The notions of frequency and mode are typically used with categorical data
7 Percentiles For continuous data, the notion of a percentile is more useful. Given an ordinal or continuous attribute x and a number p between 0 and 100, the pth percentile is a value of x such that p% of the observed values of x are less than. x p x p x p For instance, the 50th percentile is the value x 50% such that 50% of all values of x are less than. x 50%
8 Measures of Location: Mean and Median The mean is the most common measure of the location of a set of points. However, the mean is very sensitive to outliers. Thus, the median or a trimmed mean is also commonly used.
9 Measures of Spread: Range and Variance Range is the difference between the max and min The variance or standard deviation is the most common measure of the spread of a set of points. However, this is also sensitive to outliers, so that other measures are often used. (AAD: Average Absolute Deviation (MAD: Median Absolute Deviation
10 Visualization Visualization is the conversion of data into a visual or tabular format so that the characteristics of the data and the relationships among data items or attributes can be analyzed or reported. Visualization of data is one of the most powerful and appealing techniques for data exploration. Humans have a well developed ability to analyze large amounts of information that is presented visually Can detect general patterns and trends Can detect outliers and unusual patterns
11 Example: Sea Surface Temperature The following shows the Sea Surface Temperature (SST) for July 1982 Tens of thousands of data points are summarized in a single figure
12 Representation Is the mapping of information to a visual format Data objects, their attributes, and the relationships among data objects are translated into graphical elements such as points, lines, shapes, and colors. Example: Objects are often represented as points Their attribute values can be represented as the position of the points or the characteristics of the points, e.g., color, size, and shape If position is used, then the relationships of points, i.e., whether they form groups or a point is an outlier, is easily perceived.
13 Arrangement Is the placement of visual elements within a display Can make a large difference in how easy it is to understand the data Example:
14 Selection Is the elimination or the de-emphasis of certain objects and attributes Selection may involve choosing a subset of attributes Dimensionality reduction is often used to reduce the number of dimensions to two or three Alternatively, pairs of attributes can be considered Selection may also involve choosing a subset of objects A region of the screen can only show so many points Can sample, but want to preserve points in sparse areas
15 Visualization Techniques: Histograms Histogram Usually shows the distribution of values of a single variable Divide the values into bins and show a bar plot of the number of objects in each bin. The height of each bar indicates the number of objects Shape of histogram depends on the number of bins Example: Petal Width (10 and 20 bins, respectively)
16 Two-Dimensional Histograms Show the joint distribution of the values of two attributes Example: petal width and petal length What does this tell us?
17 Visualization Techniques: Box Plots Box Plots Invented by J. Tukey Another way of displaying the distribution of data Following figure shows the basic part of a box plot outlier 10 th percentile 75 th percentile 50 th percentile 25 th percentile 10 th percentile
18 Example of Box Plots Box plots can be used to compare attributes
19 Visualization Techniques: Scatter Plots Scatter plots Attributes values determine the position Two-dimensional scatter plots most common, but can have three-dimensional scatter plots Often additional attributes can be displayed by using the size, shape, and color of the markers that represent the objects It is useful to have arrays of scatter plots that can compactly summarize the relationships of several pairs of attributes See example on the next slide
20 Scatter Plot Array of Iris Attributes
21 Visualization Techniques: Contour Plots Contour plots Useful when a continuous attribute is measured on a spatial grid They partition the plane into regions of similar values The contour lines that form the boundaries of these regions connect points with equal values The most common example is contour maps of elevation Can also display temperature, rainfall, air pressure, etc. An example for Sea Surface Temperature (SST) is provided on the next slide
22 Contour Plot Example: SST Dec, 1998 Celsius
23 Visualization Techniques: Matrix Plots Matrix plots Can plot the data matrix This can be useful when objects are sorted according to class Typically, the attributes are normalized to prevent one attribute from dominating the plot Plots of similarity or distance matrices can also be useful for visualizing the relationships between objects Examples of matrix plots are presented on the next two slides
24 Visualization of the Iris Data Matrix standard deviation
25 Visualization of the Iris Correlation Matrix
26 Visualization Techniques: Parallel Coordinates Parallel Coordinates Used to plot the attribute values of high-dimensional data Instead of using perpendicular axes, use a set of parallel axes The attribute values of each object are plotted as a point on each corresponding coordinate axis and the points are connected by a line Thus, each object is represented as a line Often, the lines representing a distinct class of objects group together, at least for some attributes Ordering of attributes is important in seeing such groupings
27 Parallel Coordinates Plots for Iris Data
28 Other Visualization Techniques Star Plots Similar approach to parallel coordinates, but axes radiate from a central point The line connecting the values of an object is a polygon Chernoff Faces Approach created by Herman Chernoff This approach associates each attribute with a characteristic of a face The values of each attribute determine the appearance of the corresponding facial characteristic Each object becomes a separate face Relies on human s ability to distinguish faces
29 Star Plots for Iris Data Setosa Versicolour Virginica
30 Chernoff Faces for Iris Data Setosa Versicolour Virginica
31 OLAP On-Line Analytical Processing (OLAP) was proposed by E. F. Codd, the father of the relational database. Relational databases put data into tables, while OLAP uses a multidimensional array representation. Such representations of data previously existed in statistics and other fields There are a number of data analysis and data exploration operations that are easier with such a data representation.
32 Creating a Multidimensional Array Two key steps in converting tabular data into a multidimensional array. First, identify which attributes are to be the dimensions and which attribute is to be the target attribute whose values appear as entries in the multidimensional array. The attributes used as dimensions must have discrete values The target value is typically a count or continuous value, e.g., the cost of an item Can have no target variable at all except the count of objects that have the same set of attribute values Second, find the value of each entry in the multidimensional array by summing the values (of the target attribute) or count of all objects that have the attribute values corresponding to that entry.
33 Example: Iris data We show how the attributes, petal length, petal width, and species type can be converted to a multidimensional array First, we discretized the petal width and length to have categorical values: low, medium, and high We get the following table - note the count attribute
34 Example: Iris data (continued) Each unique tuple of petal width, petal length, and species type identifies one element of the array. This element is assigned the corresponding count value. The figure illustrates the result. All non-specified tuples are 0.
35 Example: Iris data (continued) Slices of the multidimensional array are shown by the following cross-tabulations What do these tables tell us?
