Chameleon Statistics

Note: This software is available again!

Chameleon Statistics is a new statistical data analysis and data visualization package. The program provides researchers, analysts, statisticians and other users with the ability to extract meaningful information (knowledge) from their raw data. It provides comprehensive faculties for clustering, modeling and classification of data by discovering and utilizing the natural relationships which exist amongst the elements of that data.

The program is capable of processing both data files and images of varying size and complexity and can provide several kinds of graphical representation of the data. The graphical features and output of Chameleon Statistics are amongst the finest available anywhere. The program provides facilities for manually editing or manipulating the data as well as a number of analytical techniques which can be used to examine the data.

Cluster groupings are suggested by in-built hierarchical and partition clustering algorithms and classes can be defined by the user. Class models are generated based upon several density estimation techniques which are included. Classification of existing or new data is performed on the basis of class models selected by the user. The program is able to learn from such classification results and update class memberships accordingly.

Analyses for each set of data samples are kept in separate project files, with any selection of data from a given project easily being used to generate new projects. Display styles, fonts and color settings for project windows are fully configurable. 

The range of facilities provided by Chameleon includes:

bulletImporting multivariate datasets, such as survey data, experimental results, bitmap images and so on, with size limited only by available memory.
bulletNumerical data entry via spreadsheet or graphical data entry via mouse.
bulletMultiple graphical representations of data, e.g. histograms, 2-D/3-D scatter plots that can be rotated, images and dendrograms.
bulletViewing and editing of data values from within the program.
bulletData masking to reduce sample size or ignore unwanted samples.
bulletUser-defined weighting of variables or normalization of data according to various metrics.
bulletA variety of standard hierarchical and partition clustering methods to find relationships within the data.
bulletAutomatic or user-specified selection of classes based upon extracted data relationships.
bulletParametric and non-parametric modeling of classes, such as Gaussian, k-nearest-neighbor and kernel methods.
bulletModel-based visualization of density maps and contour maps.
bulletClassification of data samples in memory or from file based upon defined classes and specified class models.
bulletLearning from classifications and updating class memberships.
bulletThe ability to save entire analyses as project files or generate new subprojects from any project.

Chameleon Statistics Scientific Edition is ideal for use by organizations and individuals working with numerical data or images. It consists of the following components:

Cluster Analysis, Density Estimation, Classification & Data Visualization

These components combine perfectly to make the Scientific Edition the data analysis package of choice. It will be especially valuable to scientists and researchers working in technical fields such as artificial intelligence, pattern recognition or remote sensing.

Chameleon Statistics Professional Edition is our feature-packed general purpose statistical package which can process all kinds of data types, can intelligently handle missing and corrupted data, and which provides all of the necessary tools and techniques required to extract meaningful information and knowledge from masses of unclassified raw data.
