This outstanding presentation of the fundamentals of multidimensional scaling illustrates the applicability of MDS to a wide variety of disciplines.

The first two sections provide ground work in the history and theory of MDS. The final section applies MDS techniques to such diverse fields as physics, marketing, and political science. Outlines a set of techniques that enable a researcher to discuss the "hidden structure" of large data bases.

These techniques use proximities, measures which indicate how similar or different objects are, to find a configuration of points which reflects the structure in the data. Outlines a set of techniques that enables a researcher to explore the hidden structure of large databases.

Abstract. The construction of typologies of criminal behavior can benefit from the use of multidimensional analytic methods.

Yet while some studies have applied such techniques to crime data (e.g., Shortet al, ; Nutch and Bloombaum, ; Chaiken and Chaiken, ), few have examined the assumptions of these methods as they apply to arrest histories.

A second approach entails use of multidimensional scaling (MDS), which has found wide application in spatial analysis following Golledge and Rushton’s () pioneering work.

MDS reduces the dimensionality of a dataset from an m × m (dis)similarity matrix (where m is the number of spatial units) to an m × n matrix, where n ≪ m and values. Verner C.

Multidimensional Scaling method makes it possible to show the configuration of multivariate objects in the space with less dimensions than the original one (usually on the plane) in such a way that a distance matrix calculated in lower dimension is the most similar to the distance matrix calculated in the original multivariate space.

MDS is used to translate "information about the pairwise 'distances' among a set of n objects or individuals" into a configuration of n points mapped into an abstract Cartesian space. More technically, MDS refers to a set of related ordination techniques used in information.

For example, multidimensional scaling (MDS) has been used to visualize data in such diverse fields as psychology, biology, geography, marketing, sociology, physics, and political science. Many applications in psychology have been directed toward understanding perceptual and conceptual representations and processes associated with interobject.

Five main bases are discussed: geographic, demographic, psychographic, behaviouristic and image. This is followed by an overview of the main techniques used to establish and verify segments, including automatic interaction detector, conjoint analysis, multidimensional scaling and canonical analysis.

The specific method used in this article is based on a joint space analysis of subjects and items by means of multidimensional scaling techniques. An extensive empirical application to shopping preferences and perceptions concludes the paper.
