Distance Matrix to Network

Network distance matrix mediator Plug-in version 4.3.0.v202011212001 by KNIME AG, Zurich, Switzerland

Converts a distance matrix into a network. Each entry of the distance matrix that matches the given threshold criteria results in an edge. The user can specify if the edge should be directed and if it should contain the distance between the connected nodes as edge weight.


Node name column
The name of the column that contains the node names
Vector column
The distance vector column to use.
The comparator to use.
The distance threshold to use.
Cache distances
Enabling this option speeds up the processing but requires more memory.
Create directed edges
The node creates directed edges if this option is ticked.
Create weighted edges
The node adds the distance between two connected vertices as weight to the connecting edge if this option is ticked.

Input Ports

Optional network to insert the nodes and edges
The table with the distance vectors
