focusedMDS: Focused, Interactive Multidimensional Scaling

Takes a distance matrix and plots it as an interactive graph. One point is focused at the center of the graph, around which all other points are plotted in their exact distances as given in the distance matrix. All other non-focus points are plotted as best as possible in relation to one another. Double click on any point to choose a new focus point, and hover over points to see their ID labels. If color label categories are given, hover over colors in the legend to highlight only those points and click on colors to highlight multiple groups. For more information on the rationale and mathematical background, as well as an interactive introduction, see <>.
