here is another look at a SOM neural net. this one is used to categorize colors ... which seems to be the 'hello world' of SOM programming. the 1st PictureBox shows the Kohonen net before being run. the 2nd PictureBox shows it after being run and classifying 9 colors. the 3rd PictureBox shows the hot spots of the net where the colors were best classified. the 4th PictureBox shows where the net has the most error because it is transitioning from one classification to another. now that i've got the basics ... i'll try to apply this to something useful
