Ordination is a set of analyses that aim to summarize and present multivariate data to display differences between samples graphically into fewer dimensions than the original data set. Ordinations fall into one of two categories: unconstrained and constrained. Unconstrained analyses are carried out on a single data table, and aim to identify patterns between samples and identify variables responsible for those patterns. Constrained ordinations are carried out to identify relationships between two or more data tables. There are many ways of calculating ordinations, and the choice is based on the data structure and the data properties to be preserved.
