Graphical representation of distance between 2 polylines

Discussion created by solomonvimal on Jul 23, 2012
I need to know how distance between 2 polylines can be quantified graphically. Some researchers have quantified the difference in the form of area between the two. Can this be done spatially?

If not, how can it be done? (perhaps with distance along x axis as the independent variable and difference between the 2 lines along y axis as the dependent variable). But how should I go about it, to quantify the spatial difference?

I greatly appreciate any comment or suggestion to this.
