Images of Similarity: A Visual Exploration of Optimal Similarity Metrics and Scaling Properties of TREC Topic-Document Sets.
Rorvig, Mark
Journal of the American Society for Information Science, v50 n8 p639-51 Jun 1999
Describes a study that used the TREC information-retrieval test collection to evaluate Visual Information Retrieval Interfaces (VIRIs). Discusses multiple-similarity measures, scaling properties, and MLE (maximum likely method), and suggests that cosine-vector and overlap measures for similarity appear to recover optimal data relationships among the documents.
