Description

Plot the scaling coordinates of the proximity matrix from randomForest.

Usage

1
MDSplot(rf, fac, k=2, palette=NULL, pch=20, ...)

Arguments

rf

an object of class randomForest that contains the proximity component.

fac

a factor that was used as response to train rf.

k

number of dimensions for the scaling coordinates.

palette

colors to use to distinguish the classes; length must be the equal to the number of levels.

pch

plotting symbols to use.

...

other graphical parameters.

Value

The output of cmdscale on 1 - rf$proximity is returned invisibly.

Note

If k > 2, pairs is used to produce the scatterplot matrix of the coordinates.
