Earth Mover's Distance on World Color Survey language response vectors

<p>Computing the Earth Mover's Distance (EMD) metric on language response vectors of the World Color Survey (WCS) is a significant undertaking even with sophisticated computational tools. Still, the distance measure is more appropriate for research into the WCS than many of the easier accessible choices.</p> <p>In this dataset, we publish a precomputed version of the EMD distance matrix for use by researchers, as well as a collection of scripts code libraries we have developed for interacting with the WCS.</p>
