Description

sMapOverlay is supposed to overlay additional data onto the trained map for viewing the distribution of that additional data. It returns an object of class "sMap". It is realised by first estimating the hit histogram weighted by the neighborhood kernel, and then calculating the distribution of the additional data over the map (similarly weighted by the neighborhood kernel). The final overlaid distribution of additional data is normalised by the hit histogram.

Usage

1
sMapOverlay(sMap, data, additional)

Arguments

sMap

an object of class "sMap"

data

a data frame or matrix of input data

additional

a numeric vector or numeric matrix used to overlay onto the trained map. It must have the length (if being vector) or row number (if matrix) being equal to the number of rows in input data

Value

an object of class "sMap", a list with following components:

Note

Weighting by neighbor kernel is to avoid rigid overlaying by only focusing on the best-matching map nodes as there may exist several closest best-matching nodes for an input data vector.

# 1) generate an iid normal random matrix of 100x10 
data <- matrix( rnorm(100*10,mean=0,sd=1), nrow=100, ncol=10)
colnames(data) <- paste(rep('S',10), seq(1:10), sep="")

# 2) get trained using by default setup
sMap <- sPipeline(data=data)

# 3) overlay additional data onto the trained map
# here using the first two columns of the input "data" as "additional"
# codebook in "sOverlay" is the same as the first two columns of codebook in "sMap"
sOverlay <- sMapOverlay(sMap=sMap, data=data, additional=data[,1:2])

# 4) viewing the distribution of that additional data
visHexMulComp(sOverlay)
