The Use of Self Organizing Map Method and Feature Selection in Image Database Classification System

This paper presents a technique in classifying the images into a number of classes or clusters desired by means of Self Organizing Map (SOM) Artificial Neural Network method. A number of 250 color images to be classified as previously done some processing, such as RGB to grayscale color conversion, color histogram, feature vector selection, and then classifying by the SOM Feature vector selection in this paper will use two methods, namely by PCA (Principal Component Analysis) and LSA (Latent Semantic Analysis) in which each of these methods would have taken the characteristic vector of 50, 100, and 150 from 256 initial feature vector into the process of color histogram.
