By Archive User posted Tue March 22, 2016 02:23 PM

Do you like interactive data visualizations on the web? Want to create your own? Then you should download the newest extension for SPSS Modeler, rCharts Basic Charts. This extension uses the rCharts R package to easily create bar, line, and scatter plots ready for the web.

To see this live go here. The repository on GitHub has directions for creating a web dashboard. This dashboard was deployed using the Bluemix DevOps service and the tutorial here. Leave a comment below if you want to see another post about the deployment of this dashboard.

You can download and install this extension directly from the GitHub repository now by following the directions below (soon this extension will be available in the extension hub for SPSS Modeler v18).

  1. Download the extension: Download (Click View Raw to download)

  2. Close IBM SPSS Modeler. Save the .cfe file in the CDB directory, located by default on Windows in "C:\ProgramData\IBM\SPSS\Modeler\18.0\CDB\" or under your IBM SPSS Modeler installation directory. Note: this is a hidden directory, so you need to type it in manually or copy/paste the file path.

  3. Restart IBM SPSS Modeler, the node will now appear in the Output palette.

Now, you're ready to create visualizations. This extension let's you get started with rCharts, but if you want to see what is possible check out the gallery. If you would like to see new functionality added to this extension, try adding code in Modeler or leave a note for us in the Issues page of the repository.
