Feature Analysis Visualizers

Feature analysis visualizers are designed to visualize instances in data space in order to detect features or targets that might impact downstream fitting. Because ML operates on high-dimensional data sets (usually at least 35), the visualizers focus on aggregation, optimization, and other techniques to give overviews of the data. It is our intent that the steering process will allow the data scientist to zoom and filter and explore the relationships between their instances and between dimensions.

At the moment we have the following feature analysis visualizers implemented:

Feature analysis visualizers implement the Transformer API from scikit-learn, meaning they can be used as intermediate transform steps in a Pipeline (particularly a VisualPipeline). They are instantiated in the same way, and then fit and transform are called on them, which draws the instances correctly. Finally poof or show is called which displays the image.
