Abstract: We prove that, if a metric measure space admits a stratification so that each stratum satisfies the strong doubling condition, then the intrinsic distance induced from the Cheeger-type energy form coincides with the original distance. In other words, we can reconstruct the distance function by the Cheeger-type energy form. We also observe that this reconstruction does not work for the Korevaar-Schoen-type energy form.
