We present a novel feature selection, fusion, and visualization utility using Spatial Voting (SV). This SV feature optimization utility is designed to be an off-line stand-alone utility to help an investigator find useful feature pairs for cluster analysis and lineage identification. The analysis can be used to enable the analyst to vary parameters manually and explore the best combination that yields visually appealing or significant groups or spreading of data points depending on the planned use of the analysis downstream. Several different criteria are available to the user in order to determine the best SV grid size and feature pair including minimizing zeros, minimizing covariance, balanced minimum covariance, or the maximization of one of eight different scoring metrics: Containment, Rand Index, Purity, Precision, Recall, F-Score, Normalized Mutual Information (NMI), and Adjusted Rand Index (ARI). The tool that is described in this work facilitates this analysis and makes it simple, efficient, and interactive if the analyst so desires.
