Portfolio Assignment 8
Creating a Simple Visualization
Task: Generate a dendrogram and a 2D cluster diagram (using multidimensional scaling)
Chapter 3 of our Collective Intelligence book includes two examples of visualization. Your assignment is to generate the graphics using the provided code examples as a guide.
For this assignment, focus on generating the graphics files.
- Implement the drawdendrogram() function and create a jpg image from the clusters in assignment 7.
- Implement the draw2d() function and create a jpg image similar to figure 3-10.
- In your own words, explain the multidimensional scaling technique used in the scaledown() function. (See p49 - 50.)
