In real life, values in a dataset might have a variety of different magnitudes, ranges, or scales. Algorithms that use distance as a parameter may not weigh all these in the same way. There are various data transformation techniques that are used to transform the features of our data so that they use the same scale, magnitude, or range. Scale patterns add an extra level of technical and cognitive difficulty to the process of mastering scales. A scale pattern is simply a numerical rearrangement of the notes of a particular scale. The Major scale, for example, has seven notes, which can be represented by the . Search the world's most comprehensive index of full-text books.

A Likert scale enables respondents to choose from a linear set of responses that increase or decrease in intensity or strength.

It is a close-ended, forced-choice scale. Widely used in psychological and other social science research today, Likert scales enable researchers to collect data that provides nuance and insight into participants.

Science fiction also may expand the scale to Type IV, where a civilization has mastery of the resources of its universe, and sometimes Type V, all the universes. The original and the final draft for this particular scale had energy consumptions ranging so widely from each other, that Kardashev himself revised the scale as to include values.

A s predictions of the loss of global biodiversity [[HN1]][1] grow increasingly pessimistic, identifying the factors that determine species richness has become a hot topic.

The best-known pattern in species diversity is the gradient ranging from low at the poles to high at the equator. This pattern is so general across so many taxa that it suggests the existence of an equally general.
