Relative Distance Cartogram algorithm question

I hope this is a comp geom problem:
If we have a distance matix can we put points on a 2
diminsional x, y coordinate grid so that they are
postioned relative to one another according to the
distance matrix elements.
- what if distance was defined in some non-euclidian
terms based on say correlation coeffients between
composite units of an aggregate (say as a function of
USA states'
comovements). In this case all restrictions based on
data might not be met with 2 dim coordinate plane. So
will
3dimensions suffice?
Is there an algorithm out there?
Any advice?
Ultimately, I want to make a graph/cartogram based on
different relative measures of distance.
Thanks much for all your time.
