In this paper two distinct similarity measures in a document vector space, the distance-based and anglebased similarity measures, are compared, and a newly developed similarity measure based upon both the distance and angle strengths of two compared objects is presented. The concept of the iso-extent contour, which facilitates the understanding of the nature of the newly developed similarity measure, is introduced. The three di€erent similarity measures are compared and the properties of the… CONTINUE READING
