Visual Explorer is the core module of the Viscovery SOMine suite. It can be operated as a stand-alone system, as well as be flexibly extended with other modules of the suite.
The two basic Preprocess Data and Explore Data workflows are available; the first guiding the user through data import and preprocessing, the latter through the creation and exploration of the SOM model.
Data sets with up to 100,000 records and up to 100 variables can be processed.
In addition to the capabilities listed in the Viscovery SOMine page, Visual Explorer provides all basic tools for SOM creation and visualization, interactive exploration, and visual cluster analysis.
