||The University of León has several billing points, so all the data from the electric
bills constitute a high-dimensional dataset which is quite complicated to visualize at a glance.
The use of techniques for dimensionality reduction enables to obtain a two-dimensional
representation of the original dataset which highlights main features in data and is easier
to visualize. If these techniques are combined with interpolation methods, it can be generated
continuous maps that allow comparison and interpretation of a whole range of possible
electric datasets, not only the original one. These tools are used to create interactive maps
that can be used by untrained people to exploit and analyze the information in electric bills,
detect penalties due to a power demand excess or power factor decrease and make decissions
with regard to electric contracts.
