profile k prototypes clustering

Description

Visualization of k prototypes clustering result for cluster interpretation.

Usage

1
clprofiles(object, x, vars = NULL)

Arguments

object

Object resulting from a call of resulting kproto. Also other kmeans like objects with object$cluster and object$size are possible.

x

Original data.

vars

Vector of either coloumn indices or variable names.

Details

For numerical variables boxplots and for factor variables barplots of each cluster are generated.
