SOM Visualization of Well Log Data by Odesanya Ituabhor and Samuel O. Azi (Pages 334-346)
Sale price: $5.00


The self- organizing map (SOM) method is a novel and potent tool for the visualization of high-dimensional data. It converts complex, nonlinear statistical relations between high-dimensional data into simple geometric interactions on a low-dimensional display as it thus compresses information while conserving the most important topological and metric relationships of the primary data elements on the display, it may also be thought to produce some kind of abstraction, which occur in a number of intricate engineering tasks such as process analysis, control,machine perception and communication.

This paper presents an SOM visualization of well log data using Matlab (R2010a) toolbox.

Keywords: Self-organizing map (SOM), visualization, well log.
