Generating a hierachy for decision tree models?
currently I am trying myself on visualizing big data with decision trees. Since I have a large dataset with a hierachy I am wondering if it is possible to apply this hierachy to the decision tree. For instance I have data for different years 2010-2015. For logical reasons it is disadvantageous to first have the year 2015 and then the year 2010 in the decision tree. But unfortunately that's exactly what the model does. Is there a way of letting the tree "know" that these attributes are chronologically?
