Min Max Scaler
This documentation is for an unreleased version of Apache Flink Machine Learning Library. We recommend you use the latest stable version.

Min Max Scaler #

Min Max Scaler is an algorithm that rescales feature values to a common range [min, max] which defined by user.

Input Columns #

Param name Type Default Description
inputCol Vector "input" features to be scaled

Output Columns #

Param name Type Default Description
outputCol Vector "output" scaled features

Parameters #

Key Default Type Required Description
inputCol "input" String no Input column name.
outputCol "output" String no Output column name.
min 0.0 Double no Lower bound of the output feature range.
max 1.0 Double no Upper bound of the output feature range.
