Abstract

SOMMER is a publicly available, Java-based toolbox for training and visualizing two- and three-dimensional unsupervised self-organizing maps (SOMs). Various map topologies are implemented for planar rectangular, toroidal, cubic-surface and spherical projections. The software allows for visualization of the training process, which has been shown to be particularly valuable for teaching purposes.
