I hope this is the right forum. High school/College maths was a long time ago.
I have a set of data for which I know the distance between each datum. I want to be able to plot this data in minimal dimensions.
Three points each with a distance of 1 from each other can be plotted on a 2D plane as an equilateral triangle. If an extra point was added with a distance of 1 from each it could be plotted as a triangular based pyramid in 3 dimensions.
There could be multiple rotations and translations possible however I only need to generate one.
I'm not even sure this is possible and have no idea where to even start. Pointing me in the right direction would be much appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
