Turkish Media in 2D (MDS & PCA Plots)

Multidimensional scaling (MDS) allows us to visualize (dis)similarities in 2D by trying to preserve the distance between the objects as much as possible. The positioning of the newspapers in the image below is generated using this technique (employed manifold.MDS class in scikit-learn). The colors of the labels are the cluster colors obtained by modularity measure as stated […]
