This paper combines the synergies of three mathematical and computational generalizations. The concepts of fractional calculus, memristor and information visualization extend the classical ideas of integro-differential calculus, electrical elements and data representation, respectively. The study embeds these notions in a common framework, with the objective of organizing and describing the "continuum" of fractional order elements (FOE). Each FOE is characterized by its behavior, either in the time or in the frequency domains, and the differences between the FOE are captured by a variety of distinct indices, such as the Arccosine, Canberra, Jaccard and Sørensen distances. The dissimilarity information is processed by the multidimensional scaling (MDS) computational algorithm to unravel possible clusters and to allow a direct pattern visualization. The MDS yields 3-dimensional loci organized according to the FOE characteristics both for linear and nonlinear elements. The new representation generalizes the standard Cartesian 2-dimensional periodic table of elements.
