How to scale/normalize values in a matrix to be between -1 and 1

368 views (last 30 days)
I found the script that scale/normalize values in a matrix to be between 0 and 1
I = [ 1 2 3; 4 5 6]; % Some n x m matrix I that contains unscaled values.
scaledI = (I-min(I(:))) ./ (max(I(:)-min(I(:))));
min(scaledI(:)) % the min is 0
max(scaledI(:)) % the max 1
Was wondering if anyone could help me normalize values in matrix between -1 and +1 Thanks

Once you have your result:
scaledl = scaledl.*2 - 1;
Or directly:
result = -1 + 2.*(data - min(data))./(max(data) - min(data));

If you're using release R2018a or later, use the normalize function. Specify 'range' as the method and the range to which you want the data normalized (in this case [-1, 1]) as the methodtype.
x = 5*rand(1, 10)
n = normalize(x, 'range', [-1 1])
[minValue, maxValue] = bounds(n) % Should return -1 and 1

function data = normalize(d)
% the data is normalized so that max is 1, and min is 0
data = (d -repmat(min(d,[],1),size(d,1),1))*spdiags(1./(max(d,[],1)-min(d,[],1))’,0,size(d,2),size(d,2));
