The goal of this research is to understand the true distribution of character patterns. Advances in computer technology for mass storage and digital processing have paved way to process a massive dataset for various pattern recognition problems. If we can represent and analyze the distribution of a large-scale character pattern set directly and understand its relationships deeply, it should be helpful for improving character recognizer. For this purpose, we propose a network analysis method to represent the distribution of patterns using a relative neighborhood graph and its clustered version. In this paper, the properties and validity of the proposed method are confirmed on 410,564 machine-printed digit patterns and 622,660 handwritten digit patterns which were manually ground-truthed and resized to 16 times 16 pixels. Our network analysis method represents the distribution of the patterns without any assumption, approximation or loss.
