Linkspotter, a package of the R software to calculate and visualize all the bivariate correlations of a dataset

Linkspotter is a package of the R software that mainly allows to calculate and visualize using a graph all the bivariate links of a dataset.

Its main features are

  • Calculation of several correlation matrices corresponding to different link coefficients
  • Clustering of variables using an unsupervised learning
  • Supervised discretization of one or a couple of variables

It also offers a customizable user interface, allowing to

  • Visualize the links using a graph (the variables correspond to the nodes and the links correspond to the edges)
  • Show the distribution of each variable using its histogram or barplot
  • Visualize a link between a couple of variables using scatter plots, box plots, etc.
