Sample text

This usually avoids errors on import and allows focus to be given to processing each attribute in a more controlled way. Splitting files into smaller pieces Processing a single large file that results in many attributes may exceed available memory, which is ultimately dictated by the computer on which RapidMiner is running. In this situation, it is sometimes possible to split a file into chunks using the capabilities of RapidMiner. An example process that does this is shown in the following screenshot: [ 23 ] Loading Data This process reads each line of the entire CSV file to be split into chunks.

RapidMiner Studio allows quick manipulation of data to allow it to be enhanced, so that it can be visualized better. This chapter has given us some ideas about this. It is particularly true that in the case of visualization, there is tremendous scope for creative presentation and exploration, and this chapter is only a start. You will find yourself visualizing data all the time. The next chapter discusses parsing and converting attributes into different forms or into new attributes. This is an important part of visualizing data since it is sometimes necessary to do this to make visualizations more appealing.

51 ] Parsing and Converting Attributes The following screenshot shows some examples of date calculations within the Generate Attributes operator. xml process is available with the files that accompany this book. Various calculations are performed on the date provided as the first attribute. Note how the result of a previous step can be used in subsequent steps. The result of running this is shown in the following screenshot, which shows the meta-data of the created attributes: [ 52 ] Chapter 4 Note that the strings created using DATE_SHORT built-in formats are ambiguous because the month and day have been swapped.
