To take advantage of the increasing amount of available multi-wavelength astronomical data, we are statistically merging data from several wavelength regimes to analyze astronomical objects. This simultaneous analysis of emission across a wide range of wavelengths will help to provide a composite understanding of young stellar objects. A statistical clustering technique coupled with fused multi-wavelength data from the optical, infrared, and X-ray can provide insight into the physical mechanisms responsible for the intense emission from young stars in different wavelength regimes and can be used to view trends and correlations between those regimes. We present some details of the data fusion followed by our results thus far analyzing spectral data from pre-main sequence (PMS) stars in the Orion Nebula Cluster (ONC).
