[SciPy-user] "clustergrams"/hierarchical clustering heat maps
Tue Feb 3 01:12:32 CST 2009
I was recently asked to cluster some data and I know from experience
that people use these heat maps to look for patterns in multivariate
data, often with a dendrogram off to the side. This involves sorting
the rows and columns in a certain fashion, the details of which are
somewhat fuzzy to me (and, truthfully, I'm happy with it staying that
way for now).
I notice that dendrogram plotting is available in
scipy.cluster.hierarchy, and was wondering if the something for
producing the associated sorted heat maps is available anywhere
(within SciPy or otherwise).
