UseR talk, fitting a nomo equation in R (drawn in PyNomo)

Postby Glen » Tue Feb 07, 2012 2:28 am

Wasn't sure whether to post this here or in General.

At last year's UseR! conference, Johnathan Rougier presented a talk on making (and using) nomograms to estimate weights of donkeys in Africa (on joint work with Kate Milner). He fitted models to data in R (using Box-Cox transformations, something I've already mentioned here before - it's a good first thing to try for nomograms) and then used PyNomo to create the nomograms from the fitted models.

abstract here: www.warwick.ac.uk/statsdept/user-2011/i ... ougier.pdf (useful for context)

video and slides:

The same slides are also available as a download on other pages; you should be able to find them via google.

Thanks for the link! I had seen the slides but now also watched the talk that had very good discussion of cons and pros of nomographs.
