## Principal Component Analysis (PCA) vs Ordinary Least Squares (OLS): A Visual Explanation

September 16, 2010
By

Over at stats.stackexchange.com recently, a really interesting question was raised about principal component analysis (PCA). The gist was “Thanks to my college class I can do the math, but what does it MEAN?” I felt like this a number of times in my life. Many of my classes were focused on the technical implementations they kinda

## Using R and r.mapcalc (GRASS) to Estimate Mean Topographic Curvature

August 3, 2010
By

Recently I was re-reading a paper on predictive soil mapping (Park et al, 2001), and considered testing one of their proposed terrain attributes in GRASS. The attribute, originally described by Blaszczynski (1997), is the distance-weighted mean differe...

## Tutorial: Principal Components Analysis (PCA) in R

The following fully-automatic Bash script downloads, compiles, and initializes compcache version 0.6.2 on Ubuntu Karmic Koala (9.10). This script creates two swaps with a maximum of 4GB uncompressed size each. Two swaps are used to take advantage of 2 CPUs (or CPU cores in a multicore CPU). Compcache is a fascinating memory compression system. The

## Principal Component Analysis Cluster Plots with Plotly

July 19, 2016
By

The Problem When clustering data using principal component analysis, it is often of interest to visually inspect how well the data points separate in 2-D space based on principal component scores. While this is fairly straightforward to visualize with a scatterplot, the plot can become cluttered quickly with annotations as shown in the following figure:
