Data Set Information:

There are two versions to the database:
- V1 contains the original examples and
- V2 contains descriptions after discretizing numeric properties.

There are no ``classes'' in the domain. Rather this is a DESIGN domain where 5 properties (design description) need to be predicted based on 7 specification properties.


Attribute Information:

The type field state whether a property is continuous/integer (c) or nominal (n).

For properties with c,n type, the range of continuous numbers is given first and the possible values of the nominal follow the semi-colon.

Name / Type / Possible values / Comments

1. IDENTIF / -- / -- / identifier of the examples
2. RIVER / n / A, M, O / --
3. LOCATION / n / 1 to 52 / --
4. ERECTED / c,n / 1818-1986 ; CRAFTS, EMERGING, MATURE, MODERN / --
5. PURPOSE / n / WALK, AQUEDUCT, RR, HIGHWAY / --
6. LENGTH / c,n / 804-4558 ; SHORT, MEDIUM, LONG / --
7. LANES / c,n / 1, 2, 4, 6 ; 1, 2, 4, 6 / --
8. CLEAR-G / n / N, G / --
9. T-OR-D / n / THROUGH, DECK / --
10. MATERIAL / n / WOOD, IRON, STEEL / --
11. SPAN / n / SHORT, MEDUIM, LONG / --
12. REL-L / n / S, S-F, F / --
