In the previous post, I described how I’d put together a basic system to drive data selection/exploration through a queue. While generating more graphs, it became evident that the code for mouseover interaction followed a specific pattern. More importantly, using Basis to plot stuff, mandated that I look at the inverse problem; namely, determining the original point from the point under the mouse pointer. In this case, it was pretty simple, since I’m only dealing with 2D points. Here’s a video of how it looks like. The example shows the exploration of a covariance matrix.
I’m currently considering pulling this out into its own module, but will wait for it to evolve some more in upcoming mining experiments.
