Transform

Given dataset and preprocessor transforms the dataset.

Inputs
Data
input dataset
Preprocessor
preprocessor for transformation
Outputs
Transformed Data
transformed dataset

Transform maps new data into a transformed space. For example, if we transform some data with PCA and wish to observe new data in the same space, we can use transform to map the new data into the PCA space created from the original data.

Widget accepts new data on the input and a preprocessor that was used to transform the old data.

Example

We will use iris data from the File widget for this example. To create two separate data sets, we will use Select Rows and set the condition to iris is one of iris-setosa, iris-versicolor. This will output a data set with a 100 rows, half of them belonging to iris-setosa class and the other half to iris-versicolor.

We will transform the data with PCA and select the first two components, which explain 96% of variance. Now, we would like to apply the same preprocessing on the ‘new’ data, that is the remaining 50 iris virginicas. Send the unused data from Select Rows to Transform. Make sure to use the Unmatched Data output from Select Rows widget. Then add the Preprocessor output from PCA.

Transform will apply the preprocessor to the new data and output it. To add the new data to the old data, use Concatenate. Use Transformed Data output from PCA as Primary Data and Transformed Data from Transform as Additional Data.

Observe the results in a Data Table or in a Scatter Plot to see the new data in relation to the old one.
