Plant community data of species in places are compressed to give meaningful pattern in a lower dimension space. The outcome of analysis is affected by the context and transformation of the data. All this is a set of scaling operations that effect emergence in the data. Curvature in output can be distortion but is often the interaction between levels of analysis.

Keywords:   context, correlation, data reduction, data tranformation, distance, emergence, hierarchy, multivariate analysis, plant community, scaling
