MappingQuality() calculates the trustworthiness and continuity
of mapped distances (Venna and Kaski 2001; Kaski et al. 2003)
Trustworthiness measures, on a scale from 0--1,
the degree to which points that are nearby in a mapping are truly close
neighbours; continuity, the extent to which points that are truly nearby
retain their close spatial proximity in a mapping.
MappingQuality(original, mapped, neighbours = 10L) ProjectionQuality(original, mapped, neighbours = 10L)
Square matrix or
dist object containing
original / mapped pairwise distances.
Integer specifying number of nearest neighbours to use in calculation. This should typically be small relative to the number of points.
MappingQuality() returns a named vector of length four,
containing the entries:
(the product of these values), and
sqrtTxC (its square root).
