Self-Organising Maps (SOMs)Exploratory data analysis methods such as Self Organising Maps (SOM’s) can provide an alternative way to analyse spatial data, especially when the data is multi-dimensional. 1 What are SOMs?Self-Organising Maps (SOMs) are a type of unsupervised Artificial Neural Networks (ANNs). They were developed by Teuvo Kohonen in the early 1980’s and are mostly used […]
