Definitions:

Compare to Another Batter - This function looks at the two batters over the same time frame and set of conditions. Then it subtracts the percentage of pitches swung at by the second hitter from the first. For example, if the Batter swung at a pitch in a zone 40% of the time and the Compare to Another Batter swung at pitches in the same zone 50% of the time, the output for that zone would be -10% (40%-50%).

Compare to League Average - This function works the same as Compare to Another Batter, but instead it compares the selected batter to the league average. Creating the league average is extremely time consuming (hours of processing), so as of right now there is a league average for both right and left handed hitters for both the 2.4 inch and 6 inch scales (4 total league average comparisons).

Regression Amount - This number is the amount of league average values that are added to the players total. At least some value (10 to 30) should be added to each player to make sure that each outputted data point has some values associated with that zone and that a few extreme values do not incorrectly dominate the outputted image.

Scale - Scale may need to be adjusted for a cleaner output. The data is put into subsets and there may not be enough data to have a smooth and/or accurate output. The scales are based on the percentage of pitches swung divided by the total pitches in that part of the plate. The 2.4 inch scale is 15x15 (225 total) outputted data zones and the 6 inch scale is 6 by 6 (36 total) outputted data zones.
