## fastmap and the jaccard distance

October 31, 2008 | View Comments

given a set of pairwise distances how do you determine what points correspond to those distances?

my latest experiment considers this problem in relation to jaccard distances, a resemblance measure similar to jaccard coefficients used in a previous experiment

by using the fastmap algorithm we get points from distances and once you have points you have visualisation!
