Methods, computer-executable instructions on computer-readable media, and systems for generating fusible signatures for information contained in two or more corpora of data. The fusible signatures can allow the information from the separate corpora of data to be merged, or fused, into a single information space that allows information analysts to explore, analyze, and/or further process the fused data. Prior to manipulation by the embodiments of the present invention, the information contained in at least one of the individual corpora of data is typically represented by initial signatures that are not directly fusible with information in the other corpora of data because of differences, for example, in dimensionality, source, data type, basis, and/or the space in which the initial signatures reside.
