In a matrix plot, all cells of a data matrix are visualized by
rectangles. Available data is coded according to a continuous color scheme.
To compute the colors via interpolation, the variables are first scaled to
the interval [0,1]. Missing/imputed values can then be
visualized by a clearly distinguishable color. It is thereby possible to use
colors in the HCL or RGB color space. A simple way of
visualizing the magnitude of the available data is to apply a greyscale,
which has the advantage that missing/imputed values can easily be
distinguished by using a color such as red/orange. Note that Inf
and Inf
are always assigned the begin and end color, respectively, of
the continuous color scheme.
Additionally, the observations can be sorted by the magnitude of a selected
variable. If interactive
is TRUE
, clicking in a column
redraws the plot with observations sorted by the corresponding variable.
Clicking anywhere outside the plot region quits the interactive session.
TKRmatrixplot
behaves like matrixplot
, but uses
tkrplot
to embed the plot in a Tcl/Tk window.
This is useful if the number of observations and/or variables is large,
because scrollbars allow to move from one part of the plot to another.
This is a much more powerful extension to the function imagmiss
in the former CRAN package dprep
.
iimagMiss
is deprecated and may be omitted in future versions of
VIM
. Use matrixplot
instead.
