sklearn.preprocessing.minmax_scale(X, feature_range=(0, 1), axis=0, copy=True)[source]

Transforms features by scaling each feature to a given range.

This estimator scales and translates each feature individually such that it is in the given range on the training set, i.e. between zero and one.

The transformation is given by:

X_std = (X - X.min(axis=0)) / (X.max(axis=0) - X.min(axis=0))
X_scaled = X_std * (max - min) + min

where min, max = feature_range.

This transformation is often used as an alternative to zero mean, unit variance scaling.

New in version 0.17: minmax_scale function interface to sklearn.preprocessing.MinMaxScaler.


feature_range : tuple (min, max), default=(0, 1)

Desired range of transformed data.

axis : int (0 by default)

axis used to scale along. If 0, independently scale each feature, otherwise (if 1) scale each sample.

copy : boolean, optional, default is True

Set to False to perform inplace scaling and avoid a copy (if the input is already a numpy array).
