Phase Coherent Data-scatter (PCD-S) was originally developed for the area of tensiographic data mining and analysis. This development has been augmented with the engineering of a software toolkit called TraceMiner, which integrates this technique with additional data mining and statistical tools for general use. This paper presents, for the first time, a theoretical treatment of data-scatter as a generic data mining tool, cognisant of the data set descriptions, data transformations, measurands and data model visualisations possible with data-scatter. Data-diffraction resulting from data scatter is also presented here for the first time. The use of the two approaches in a Hough technique to analyse the resulting data-diffraction patterns is discussed briefly in the context of applications of this new data scatter approach.
