Hi there, I’m wondering about datepart what the new column Elapsed contains. Glancing at the source code in structured.py didn’t help me.
What I am getting at is: I would like to include time of day (hours and minutes) as part as my dataset. I’m working with the number of parked cars in a group of public parking garages, and I have new data points every 5 minutes. My reason is that the time of day is important for estimating y (number of parked cars).
Should I manually create the columns Hourofday [0…23] and MinuteofHour[0…59] ?
I figured out that Elapsed is the UNIX timestamp.
So 1438300800 translates to GMT: Friday, July 31, 2015 12:00:00 AM
Just duckduckgo unix timestamp converter
