A resource base for Multidimensional Scaling
"Multidimensional Scaling refers to a family of models where the structure in a set of data is represented graphically by the relationships between a set of points in a space. MDS can be used on a variety of data, using different models and allowing different assumptions about the level of measurement. (A. P. M. Coxon (2004), Multidimensional Scaling in M.S. Lewis-Beck,
A. Bryman, T. F. Liao, The Sage Encyclopedia of Social Science Research Methods, Thousand Oaks, Sage.)
It is with great sadness that we record the passing of Anthony Peter Macmillan Coxon, the founder and
primary author of this site
and one of the foremost international proponents of Multidimensional Scaling. Tony was diagnosed with a brain tumour in December 2011
and died on 7th February 2012.
May he rest in Peace.
