Archetypal analysis was first introduced by Adele Cutler and Leo Breiman in 1994. In their paper they presented three examples: Swiss soldiers, air pollution, and Tokamak fusion. We extend the work with three additional case studies including nutrition data from the Cache County Memory and Aging Study, community attachment data provided by the Knight Foundation, and leaf shape data.
