[docs]class Manifold(ProjectionVisualizer):
"""
The Manifold visualizer provides high dimensional visualization for feature
analysis by embedding data into 2 dimensions using the sklearn.manifold
package for manifold learning. In brief, manifold learning algorithms are
unsuperivsed approaches to non-linear dimensionality reduction (unlike PCA
or SVD) that help visualize latent structures in data.
The manifold algorithm used to do the embedding in scatter plot space can
either be a transformer or a string representing one of the already
specified manifolds as follows:
============== ==========================
Manifold Description
-------------- --------------------------
``"lle"`` `Locally Linear Embedding`_
``"ltsa"`` `LTSA LLE`_
``"hessian"`` `Hessian LLE`_
``"modified"`` `Modified LLE`_
``"isomap"`` `Isomap`_
``"mds"`` `Multi-Dimensional Scaling`_
``"spectral"`` `Spectral Embedding`_
``"tsne"`` `t-SNE`_
============== ==========================
Each of these algorithms embeds non-linear relationships in different ways,
allowing for an exploration of various structures in the feature space.
Note however, that each of these algorithms has different time, memory and
complexity requirements; take special care when using large datasets!
The Manifold visualizer also shows the specified target (if given) as the
color of the scatter plot. If a classification or clustering target is
given, then discrete colors will be used with a legend. If a regression or
continuous target is specified, then a colormap and colorbar will be shown.
Parameters
----------
ax : matplotlib Axes, default: None
The axes to plot the figure on. If None, the current axes will be used
or generated if required.
manifold : str or Transformer, default: "mds"
Specify the manifold algorithm to perform the embedding. Either one of
the strings listed in the table above, or an actual scikit-learn
transformer. The constructed manifold is accessible with the manifold
property, so as to modify hyperparameters before fit.
n_neighbors : int, default: None
Many manifold algorithms are nearest neighbors based, for those that
are, this parameter specfies the number of neighbors to use in the
embedding. If n_neighbors is not specified for those embeddings, it is
set to 5 and a warning is issued. If the manifold algorithm doesn't use
nearest neighbors, then this parameter is ignored.
features : list, default: None
The names of the features specified by the columns of the input dataset.
This length of this list must match the number of columns in X, otherwise
an exception will be raised on ``fit()``.
classes : list, default: None
The class labels for each class in y, ordered by sorted class index. These
names act as a label encoder for the legend, identifying integer classes
or renaming string labels. If omitted, the class labels will be taken from
the unique values in y.
Note that the length of this list must match the number of unique values in
y, otherwise an exception is raised. This parameter is only used in the
discrete target type case and is ignored otherwise.
colors : list or tuple, default: None
A single color to plot all instances as or a list of colors to color each
instance according to its class in the discrete case or as an ordered
colormap in the sequential case. If not enough colors per class are
specified then the colors are treated as a cycle.
colormap : string or cmap, default: None
The colormap used to create the individual colors. In the discrete case
it is used to compute the number of colors needed for each class and
in the continuous case it is used to create a sequential color map based
on the range of the target.
target_type : str, default: "auto"
Specify the type of target as either "discrete" (classes) or "continuous"
(real numbers, usually for regression). If "auto", then it will
attempt to determine the type by counting the number of unique values.
If the target is discrete, the colors are returned as a dict with classes
being the keys. If continuous the colors will be list having value of
color for each point. In either case, if no target is specified, then
color will be specified as the first color in the color cycle.
projection : int or string, default: 2
The number of axes to project into, either 2d or 3d. To plot 3d plots
with matplotlib, please ensure a 3d axes is passed to the visualizer,
otherwise one will be created using the current figure.
alpha : float, default: 0.75
Specify a transparency where 1 is completely opaque and 0 is completely
transparent. This property makes densely clustered points more visible.
random_state : int or RandomState, default: None
Fixes the random state for stochastic manifold algorithms.
colorbar : bool, default: True
If the target_type is "continous" draw a colorbar to the right of the
scatter plot. The colobar axes is accessible using the cax property.
kwargs : dict
Keyword arguments passed to the base class and may influence the
feature visualization properties.
Attributes
----------
fit_time_ : yellowbrick.utils.timer.Timer
The amount of time in seconds it took to fit the Manifold.
classes_ : ndarray, shape (n_classes,)
The class labels that define the discrete values in the target. Only
available if the target type is discrete. This is guaranteed to be
strings even if the classes are a different type.
features_ : ndarray, shape (n_features,)
The names of the features discovered or used in the visualizer that
can be used as an index to access or modify data in X. If a user passes
feature names in, those features are used. Otherwise the columns of a
DataFrame are used or just simply the indices of the data array.
range_ : (min y, max y)
A tuple that describes the minimum and maximum values in the target.
Only available if the target type is continuous.
Examples
--------
>>> viz = Manifold(manifold='isomap', target='discrete')
>>> viz.fit_transform(X, y)
>>> viz.show()
Notes
-----
Specifying the target as ``'continuous'`` or ``'discrete'`` will influence
how the visualizer is finally displayed, don't rely on the automatic
determination from the Manifold!
Scaling your data with the standard scalar before applying it to the
visualizer is a great way of increasing performance. Additionally using
the ``SelectKBest`` transformer may also improve performance and lead to
better visualizations.
.. warning::
Manifold visualizers have extremly varying time, resource, and
complexity requirements. Sampling data or features may be necessary
in order to finish a manifold computation.
