The Distance – Similarity Metaphor in Network-Display Spatializations

  title={The Distance – Similarity Metaphor in Network-Display Spatializations},
  author={Sara Irina Fabrikant and Daniel R. Montello and Marco Ruocco and Richard S. Middleton},
Dimensionality reduction algorithms are applied in the field of information visualization to generate low-dimensional, visuo-spatial displays of complex, multivariate databases—spatializations. Most popular dimensionality reduction algorithms project relatedness in data content among entities in an information space (e.g., semantic similarity) onto some form of distance among the entities, such that semantically similar documents are placed closer to one another than less similar ones.
