dist: Enhanced Distance Matrix Computation and Visualization

Description Usage Arguments Value Author(s) See Also Examples

Description

Clustering methods classify data samples into groups of similar objects. This process requires some methods for measuring the distance or the (dis)similarity between the observations. Read more: STHDA website - clarifying distance measures..

get_dist(x, method = "euclidean", stand = FALSE, ...)

fviz_dist(
  dist.obj,
  order = TRUE,
  show_labels = TRUE,
  lab_size = NULL,
  gradient = list(low = "red", mid = "white", high = "blue")
)

Arguments

x

a numeric matrix or a data frame.

method

the distance measure to be used. This must be one of "euclidean", "maximum", "manhattan", "canberra", "binary", "minkowski", "pearson", "spearman" or "kendall".

stand

logical value; default is FALSE. If TRUE, then the data will be standardized using the function scale(). Measurements are standardized for each variable (column), by subtracting the variable's mean value and dividing by the variable's standard deviation.

...

other arguments to be passed to the function dist() when using get_dist().

dist.obj

an object of class "dist" as generated by the function dist() or get_dist().

order

logical value. if TRUE the ordered dissimilarity image (ODI) is shown.

show_labels

logical value. If TRUE, the labels are displayed.

lab_size

the size of labels.

gradient

a list containing three elements specifying the colors for low, mid and high values in the ordered dissimilarity image. The element "mid" can take the value of NULL.
