This section deals with those branches of mathematics that treat the collection, organization, analysis, and interpretation of data. The different applications and operations spread over several modules and submodules –
scipy.stats (for purely statistical tools),
scipy.ndimage.measurements (for analysis and organization of data),
scipy.spatial (for spatial algorithms and data structures), and finally the clustering package
scipy.cluster, with its two submodules –
scipy.cluster.vq (vector quantization) and
scipy.cluster.hierarchy (for hierarchical and agglomerative clustering).
We often require the analysis of data in which certain features are grouped in different regions, each with different ...
