WEBSOM - Self-Organizing Maps for Internet Exploration
Welcome to test the document exploration tool WEBSOM. An ordered map
of the information space is provided: similar documents lie near each
other on the map. The order helps in finding related documents once
any interesting document is found.
Since the start of the project the following main developments have
taken place: creation of considerably larger maps, improved quality of
maps, automatic labeling, and a possibility to perform
searches on the maps.
The largest document collection organized on a single map consisted of
about 7 million patent abstracts (see the publication for
details). Unfortunately, we cannot open the demo to the public due to
our restricted licence concerning the text material.
