ecStat

A statistical and data mining tool for ECharts. You can use it to analyze data and then visualize the results with ECharts, or just use it to process data.

It works both in node.js and in the browser.

Read this in other languages: English, 简体中文.

Installing

If you use npm, you can install it with:

 npm install echarts-stat

Otherwise, download this tool from dist directory:

<script src='./dist/ecStat.js'></script>
<script>

var result = ecStat.clustering.hierarchicalKMeans(data, clusterNumber, false);

</script>

API Reference

Histogram

A histogram is a graphical representation of the distribution of numerical data. It is an estimate of the probability distribution of a quantitative variable. It is a kind of bar graph. To construct a histogram, the first step is to "bin" the range of values - that is, divide the entire range of values into a series of intervals - and then count how many original sample values fall into each interval. The bins are usually specified as consecutive, non-overlapping intervals of a variable. Here the bins(intervals) must be adjacent, and are of equal size.

Syntax

var bins = ecStat.histogram(data, binMethod);
Parameter
  • data - Array<number>. Data samples of numbers.

     var data = [8.6, 8.8, 10.5, 10.7, 10.8, 11.0, ... ];
  • binMethod - string. There are four methods to calculate the number of bin, which are squareRoot, scott, freedmanDiaconis, and sturges. Of course, there is no "best" number of bin, and different bin size can reveal different feature of data.

    • squareRoot - This is the default method, which is also used by Excel histogram. Returns the number of bin according to Square-root choice:

      var bins = ecStat.histogram(data);
    • scott - Returns the number of bin according to Scott's normal reference Rule:

       var bins = ecStat.histogram(data, 'scott');
    • freedmanDiaconis - Returns the number of bin according to The Freedman-Diaconis rule:

       var bins = ecStat.histogram(data, 'freedmanDiaconis');
    • sturges - Returns the number of bin according to Sturges' formula:

       var bins = ecStat.histogram(data, 'sturges');
Return Value
  • bins - Object. Contain detailed messages of each bin and data used for ECharts to draw the histogram.
    • bins.bins - Array.<Object>. An array of bins, where each bin is an object, containing three attributes:
      • x0 - number. The lower bound of the bin (inclusive).
      • x1 - number. The upper bound of the bin (exclusive).
      • sample - Array.<number>. Containing the associated elements from the input data.
    • bins.data - Array.<Array.<number>>. Used for bar chart to draw the histogram, each bin data is an array not only containing the mean value of x0 and x1, but also the length of sample, which is the number of sample values in this bin.
    • bins.customData - Array.<Array<number>>. Used for custom chart to draw the histogram, each custom data is an array not only containing the x0 and x1, but also the length of sample, which is the number of sample values in this bin.

Examples

This example using ECharts custom chart to draw the histogram, which is the best type of chart we recommend.

Clustering

Clustering can divide the original data set into multiple data clusters with different characteristics. And through ECharts, you can visualize the results of clustering, or visualize the process of clustering.

Syntax

var result = ecStat.clustering.hierarchicalKMeans(data, clusterNumber, stepByStep);
Parameter
  • dataArray.<Array.<number>>. Two-dimensional numeric array, each data point can have more than two numeric attributes in the original data set. In the following example, data[0] is called data point and data[0][1] is one of the numeric attributes of data[0].

    var data = [
      	[1, 2, 3, 4, 5],
      	[6, 7, 8, 9, 10],
      	[11, 12, 13, 14, 15],
      	...
          ];
  • clusterNumernumber. The number of clusters generated. Note that it has to be greater than 1.

  • stepByStepboolean. Control whether doing the clustering step by step

Return Value
  • resultObject. Including the centroids, clusterAssment, and pointsInCluster. For Example:

     result.centroids = [
    
     	[-0.460, -2.778],
     	[2.934, 3.128],
         	...
     ];
    
     // Indicate which cluster each data point belonging to, and the distance to cluster centroids
     result.clusterAssment = [
    
     	[1, 0.145],
     	[2, 0.680],
     	[0, 1.022],
     	...
     ];
    
     // Concrete data point in each cluster
     result.pointsInCluster = [
     	[
     		[0.335, -3.376],
     		[-0.994, -0.884],
     		...
     	],
     	...
     ];

Examples

You can not only do cluster analysis through this interface, but also use ECharts to visualize the results.

Note: the clustering algorithm can handle multiple numeric attributes, but for the convenience of visualization, two numeric attributes are chosen here as an example.

Regression

Regression algorithm can according to the value of the dependent and independent variables of the data set, fitting out a curve to reflect their trends. The regression algorithm here only supports two numeric attributes.

Syntax

var myRegression = ecStat.regression(regressionType, data, order);
Parameters
  • regressionType - string. There are four types of regression, whice are 'linear', 'exponential', 'logarithmic', 'polynomial'.

  • data - Array.<Array.<number>>. Two-dimensional numeric array, Each data object should have two numeric attributes in the original data set. For Example:

     var data = [
    
     	[1, 2],
     	[3, 5],
     	...
     ];
  • order - number. The order of polynomial. If you choose other types of regression, you can ignore it.

Return Value
  • myRegression - Object. Including points, parameter, and expression. For Example:

     myRegression.points = [
     	[1, 2],
     	[3, 4],
     	...
     ];
    
     // This is the parameter of linear regression, for other types, it shoule be a little different
     myRegression.parameter = {
     	gradient: 1.695,
     	intercept: 3.008
     };
    
     myRegression.expression = 'y = 1.7x + 3.01';
