Tuva offers two different formats for categorical attributes. There's the regular format, where the Tuva tool treats each word or phrase as a separate category. The second format are numerical intervals, which is a special categorical grouping of cases that fall within a certain range of numbers. You may think of them as bins.
To update the formatting for categorical attributes, follow the steps below.
- Click on the pencil icon next to the attribute you want to update.
- The attribute settings panel will appear, taking up the entire case card and giving you several different options. Click on the "Type" dropdown menu to see the different attribute types you may choose from.
- Click the format from the dropdown menu. The plotting area will update to reflect any changes you've made.
- You may return to the case card by clicking the "X" at the top of the attribute settings panel.
