Mining Model Viewers (Data Mining Model Designer)


Use the Mining Model Viewer tab to explore the mining models that a mining structure contains.

First you select the mining model and then you select a viewer. Each model always has two viewers available: a custom viewer, which can include multiple tabs, and the generic viewer.

For a walkthrough of how to use each viewer, see Data Mining Model Viewers.

Mining Model

Choose a mining model to view that is contained in the current mining structure. The mining model will first open in its associated custom viewer.


Choose a viewer to use to explore the selected mining model. This list includes the viewers that Microsoft SQL Server Analysis Services provides for each mining model, the Microsoft Mining Content Viewer, and any plug-in viewers.

The following diagram shows a custom viewer and the generic viewer for the same model.

  • The upper diagram shows the viewer for a mining model based on the Microsoft Time Series algorithm. This particular custom viewer automatically creates a graph of the time series and provides five predictions.

  • The lower diagram shows the same model displayed using the Microsoft Generic Content Tree Viewer. This viewer presents the contents of the mining model according to a standardized schema. For more information, see Microsoft Generic Content Tree Viewer (Data Mining).

Overview of mining model designer

Depending on the model that you select, you will see a different custom viewer, tailored to the algorithm that you used to create the selected data mining model. Each custom viewer has a variety of tools and dialog boxes for helping you explore the statistics and patterns in the model.

The following list describes the options in each of the custom viewers.
