Linkspotter is a package of R software that allows to calculate and visualize using a graph all the bivariate links of a dataset.

Its main features are:

It also offers a customizable user interface, allowing to:

Available link coefficients are:

The MaxNMI is a bivariate link coefficient, which uses a supervised discretization called Best Equal-Frequency Discretization (BeEF). Both are introduced by Linkspotter. The interest of this new link coefficient is that it enables to assess and compare the link between a couple of variables, whatever their types (quantitative vs qualitative, quantitative vs quantitative, qualitative vs qualitative).

Linkspotter uses and combines some features coming from other R packages, namely infotheo, minerva, energy, mclust, Hmisc, shiny, visNetwork and rAmCharts.
