While this particular problem could be solved using Map or
MapThread, there is much simpler and more efficient way to get
the desired result
Unitize[Sign[x -y] +1]
will return a matrix of 1's and 0's. Element i,j will be 1 if
y[[i,j]]<x[[i,j]] and 1 other wise
But if you want to use something similar to Map the same result
can be obtained as follows:
MapThread[Unitize[Sign[#1-#2]+1]&,{x,y}]
Or if you prefer to use Boole and Map the same result can be
obtained as:
Transpose@
Map[Boole[GreaterEqual @@ #] &, Transpose[{x, y}, {3, 2, 1}], {2}]
To verify the above:
In[61]:= x = RandomInteger[{0, 10}, {5, 5}];
y = RandomInteger[{0, 10}, {5, 5}];
In[63]:= Unitize[Sign[x - y] + 1] ==
Transpose@
Map[Boole[GreaterEqual @@ #] &, Transpose[{x, y}, {3, 2, 1}], {2}]
Out[63]= True
In[64]:= Unitize[Sign[x - y] + 1] ==
MapThread[Unitize[Sign[#1 - #2] + 1] &, {x, y}]
Out[64]= True
