.MinMaxScaler¶
- class sklearn.preprocessing.MinMaxScaler(feature_range=(0, 1), *, copy=True, clip=False)[source]¶
Transform 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, e.g. 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.
MinMaxScaler
doesn’t reduce the effect of outliers, but it linearly scales them down into a fixed range, where the largest occurring data point corresponds to the maximum value and the smallest one corresponds to the minimum value. For an example visualization, refer to Compare MinMaxScaler with other scalers.Read more in the User Guide.
- Parameters:
- feature_rangetuple (min, max), default=(0, 1)
Desired range of transformed data.
- copybool, default=True
Set to False to perform inplace row normalization and avoid a copy (if the input is already a numpy array).
- clipbool, default=False
Set to True to clip transformed values of held-out data to provided
feature range
.New in version 0.24.
- Attributes:
- min_ndarray of shape (n_features,)
Per feature adjustment for minimum. Equivalent to
min - X.min(axis=0) * self.scale_
- scale_ndarray of shape (n_features,)
Per feature relative scaling of the data. Equivalent to
(max - min) / (X.max(axis=0) - X.min(axis=0))
New in version 0.17: scale_ attribute.
- data_min_ndarray of shape (n_features,)
Per feature minimum seen in the data

Per feature maximum seen in the data
New in version 0.17: data_max_
- data_range_ndarray of shape (n_features,)
Per feature range
(data_max_ - data_min_)
seen in the dataNew in version 0.17: data_range_
- n_features_in_int
Number of features seen during fit.
New in version 0.24.
- n_samples_seen_int
The number of samples processed by the estimator. It will be reset on new calls to fit, but increments across
partial_fit
calls.- feature_names_in_ndarray of shape (
n_features_in_
,) Names of features seen during fit. Defined only when
X
has feature names that are all strings.New in version 1.0.

minmax_scale
Equivalent function without the estimator API.
Notes
NaNs are treated as missing values: disregarded in fit, and maintained in transform.
Examples
>>> from sklearn.preprocessing import MinMaxScaler >>> data = [[-1, 2], [-0.5, 6], [0, 10], [1, 18]] >>> scaler = MinMaxScaler() >>> print(scaler.fit(data)) MinMaxScaler() >>> print(scaler.data_max_) [ 1. 18.] >>> print(scaler.transform(data)) [[0. 0. ] [0.25 0.25] [0.5 0.5 ] [1. 1. ]] >>> print(scaler.transform([[2, 2]])) [[1.5 0. ]]

Transformed array.
- get_feature_names_out(input_features=None)[source]¶
Get output feature names for transformation.
- Parameters:
- input_featuresarray-like of str or None, default=None
Input features.
If
input_features
isNone
, thenfeature_names_in_
is used as feature names in. Iffeature_names_in_
is not defined, then the following input feature names are generated:["x0", "x1", ..., "x(n_features_in_ - 1)"]
.If
input_features
is an array-like, theninput_features
must matchfeature_names_in_
iffeature_names_in_
is defined.
- Returns:

MetadataRequest
encapsulating routing information.
- get_params(deep=True)[source]¶

- Parameters:
- Xarray-like of shape (n_samples, n_features)

- partial_fit(X, y=None)[source]¶
Online computation of min and max on X for later scaling.
All of X is processed as a single batch. This is intended for cases when
fit
is not feasible due to very large number ofn_samples
or because X is read from a continuous stream.- Parameters:

- Returns:

- set_params(**params)[source]¶
Set the parameters of this estimator.
The method works on simple estimators as well as on nested objects (such as
Pipeline
