View Full Version : How do I plot units on a 2d space where they are grouped on simularity?

November 27th, 2009, 01:15 AM
Basically if I have say 200 people, and I have measure of how similar they are between themselves, whats an algorithm to plot them on a 2d space where the distance between them is indicative of how similar they are? I just need a general algorithm nothing specific to any language.

I cant figure it out. I have searched and simply can't find an algorithm.

Can you guys please help?
