This node maps data of a high dimensional space onto a lower (usually 2 or 3) dimensional space. Therefore the Sammons mapping is applied, which iteratively decreases the difference of the distances of high and low dimensional data. Each original data point is represented by a data point of a lower dimension. The Sammons mapping tries to keep the distance information of the high dimensional data by adjusting the low dimensional data points in a certain way. Each low dimensional data point is moved around a bit towards or back from the other points accordant to its high dimensional distances. This procedure is repeated a specified number of epochs or iterations respectively.
