Attribute Browser – can numeric values be grouped individually?


(Pat Maddox) #1

I’m using the Attribute Browser to look at a list of books, and want to divide them up by $PublicationYear. AB has a ‘bins’ thing which is kind of interesting, but doesn’t do what I want in this case.

If I change the $PublicationYear to a String, it groups them correctly by the year… so maybe that’ll just be good enough. But I’m curious if number can do that too (it would be interesting to break the books down by decade, for example).

Currently, as at v7.0.3 (for later readers), Number attributes use equally sized bins (between min and max values) defaulting to 10 bins.

So, if you want per value bins, pass to a String attribute and view that.
