DiscretizationMethod Element (ASSL)

Defines the method to be used for discretization.


<DimensionAttribute> <!-- or ScalarMiningStructureColumn -->
   ...
   <DiscretizationMethod>...</DiscretizationMethod>
   ...
</DimensionAttribute>

Characteristic Description

Data type and length

String (enumeration)

Default value

None

Cardinality

0-1: Optional element that can occur once and only once.

Relationship Element

Parent elements

DimensionAttribute, ScalarMiningStructureColumn

Child elements

None

The value of the DiscretizationMethod element determines how values for the DimensionAttribute or ScalarMiningStructureColumn are discretized, or organized into a specific set of groups. For more information about discretization methods, see Discretization Methods.

The value of this element is limited to one of the strings in the following table.

Value Description

Automatic

Equivalent to the AUTOMATIC discretization method for mining structure columns.

EqualAreas

Equivalent to the EQUAL_AREAS discretization method for mining structure columns.

Clusters

Equivalent to the CLUSTERS discretization method for mining structure columns.

Thresholds

Equivalent to the THRESHOLDS discretization method for mining structure columns.

EqualRanges

Equivalent to the EQUAL_RANGES discretization method for mining structure columns.

The enumeration corresponding to the allowed values for DiscretizationMethod in the Analysis Management Objects (AMO) object model is DiscretizationMethod.
