treeInfo {blockForest}  R Documentation 
Tree information in human readable format
Description
Extract tree information of a blockForest
object.
Usage
treeInfo(object, tree = 1)
Arguments
object 

tree 
Number of the tree of interest. 
Details
Node and variable ID's are 0indexed, i.e., node 0 is the root node.
If the formula interface is used in the blockForest
call, the variable ID's are usually different to the original data used to grow the tree.
Refer to the variable name instead to be sure.
Splitting at unordered factors (nominal variables) depends on the option respect.unordered.factors
in the blockForest
call.
For the "ignore" and "order" approaches, all values smaller or equal the splitval
value go to the left and all values larger go to the right, as usual.
However, with "order" the values correspond to the order in object$forest$covariate.levels
instead of the original order (usually alphabetical).
In the "partition" mode, the splitval
values for unordered factor are comma separated lists of values, representing the factor levels (in the original order) going to the left.
Value
A data.frame with the columns
nodeID  The nodeID, 0indexed. 
leftChild  ID of the left child node, 0indexed. 
rightChild  ID of the right child node, 0indexed. 
splitvarID  ID of the splitting variable, 0indexed. Caution, the variable order changes if the formula interface is used. 
splitvarName  Name of the splitting variable. 
splitval  The splitting value. For numeric or ordinal variables, all values smaller or equal go to the left, larger values to the right. For unordered factor variables see above. 
terminal  Logical, TRUE for terminal nodes. 
prediction  One column with the predicted class (factor) for classification and the predicted numerical value for regression. One probability per class for probability estimation in several columns. Nothing for survival, refer to object$forest$chf for the CHF node predictions.
