IndicateMissingValues(TransformsCatalog, String, String)

Create a MissingValueIndicatorEstimator, which scans the data from the column specified in inputColumnName and fills new column specified in outputColumnName with vector of bools where i-th bool has value of true if i-th element in column data has missing value and false otherwise.

Remarks

This transform can operate over several columns.

IndicateMissingValues(TransformsCatalog, String, String)

Create a MissingValueIndicatorEstimator, which scans the data from the column specified in inputColumnName and fills new column specified in outputColumnName with vector of bools where i-th bool has value of true if i-th element in column data has missing value and false otherwise.
