The som package

[Tags: bsd3, library]

A Kohonen Self-organising Map (SOM) maps input patterns onto a regular grid (usually two-dimensional) where each node in the grid is a model of the input data, and does so using a method which ensures that any topological relationships within the input data are also represented in the grid. This implementation supports the use of non-numeric patterns.

In layman's terms, a SOM can be useful when you you want to discover the underlying structure of some data.
