I am using NVI (Normalized Variation of Information) to measure the quality of clustering obtained ( a family of them) compared to the Ground Truth and also to the result obtained with another method.
Since NVI is a metric, it satisfies the triangular inequality and hence I thought it would be nice to plot the result graphically.
For that, I need a tool that given the distances among points can plot them in such a way that all the distances are respected among the different reference points. The graph should be 2D.
Do you know of any tool that can do like that? i.e. receiving a matrix of distances The matrix will not be complete, that is, the distance between all the partitions is not calculated. All the distances to the 3 references (2 GT and the additional method) and the distances among the 3 references are calculated.
If not a tool, using Matlab or Python and doing some programming is also fine for me. I have around 200 points to plot.
EDIT: I have found this answer in SO: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/13513455/drawing-a-graph-or-a-network-from-a-distance-matrix but it doesn't work properly, even for 7 nodes (that can be visually verified the correctness")
