Making Sense Out of the Session GPS Data

We collect more and more data and it is becoming increasingly difficult to make meaning out of it. I have found the following picture from MATLAB Fuzzy Logic toolbox to perfectly depict my current thought process.


What I would like to do is to present one simple way to make the meaning out of session GPS data using LOF and Clustering. Most GPS units produce multiple features p compared to number of observations n, so we are basically dealing with high-dimensional data where classical approaches such as least squares linear regression are not appropriate. Besides, we do not know what is the predicted/outcome variable, hence we are dealing with unsupervised learning problem.

Here is one randomly generated session GPS output:

In the previous part I’ve introduced multivariate modeling of impulse and response using Banister model. In this part I will continue with exploration of this model, mainly visualizing reaction predicted by the model on standardize impulse (load) and compare prediction using multiple impulses. I will use same data sets: one by Skiba and one randomly generated as in first…
