The unique SPSS® Modeler interface lets you mine your data visually by working with diagrams of data streams. At the most basic level, you can build a data stream using the following steps:

  • Add nodes to the stream canvas.
  • Connect the nodes to form a stream.
  • Specify any node or stream options.
  • Run the stream.

This section contains more detailed information on working with nodes to create more complex data streams. It also discusses options and settings for nodes and streams. For step-by-step examples of stream building using the data shipped with SPSS Modeler (in the Demos folder of your program installation), see Application examples.
