iris data set

A data set with 150 random samples of flowers from the iris species setosa, versicolor, and virginica collected by Anderson (1935). From each species there are 50 observations for sepal length, sepal width, petal length, and petal width in cm. This dataset was used by Fisher (1936) in his initiation of the linear-discriminant-function technique.
