Glass Identification Database

Description

A data frame with 214 observations, where the problem is to predict the type of glass in terms of their oxide content (i.e. Na, Fe, K, etc). The study of classification of types of glass was motivated by criminological investigation. At the scene of the crime, the glass left can be used as evidence... if it is correctly identified!
