Socio-Cultural Cognitive Mapping
We introduce Socio-cultural Cognitive Mapping (SCM), a method to characterize populations based on shared attributes, placing these actors on a spatial representation. We introduce the technique, taking the reader through an overview of the algorithm. We conclude with an example use-case of the Hatfield-McCoy feud. In the Hatfield-McCoy case, the SCM process clearly delineates members of the opposing clans as well as gender.
