Is there any math or algorithms around producing a fractal that matches a certain set of data? I know there's something like this in fractal compression of images, but I don't really know much about that either. Everything I look for about encoding data in fractals comes up with calculating the length of a coastline. I want to know, given a set of data, like a coastline, for example, is there a way to automatically produce a fractal function that approximates the line?

I know you can do this with Fourier Transforms which is really cool, but I'm looking for more of a fractal solution.

Learn tthe techniques used in fractal compression (not easy unless you're a student or paid professional) and adapt for your uses is the short answer.
Otherwise you've given me an idea that I'm going to try - I'll get back to you if/when I've proved either that it works or that it's completely useless !!
