Abstract: The aim of this essay is show some interesting analogies between space geometry and decision making space, as well as, a possible unit of measure of distance for priority vectors coming from (for instance) an AHP/ANP structure, applying the compatibility index G as a new way of measure distance in a weighted space (curved space). The aim also is that the essay should be easy to read without complex formulae or hard maths.

Keywords: Decision making, AHP, ANP, Index G
