The SOMLib Digital Library Project - Downloads


Many people have asked us to provide the modules for our SOMLib Digital Library System. So, here we go: below you will find links to a variety of modules that we use for creating our SOMLib library maps. These include some modules for preprocessing abd text cleansing, feature extraction, SOM and GHSOM training, scripts to put the various things together, etc.
The Modules are originally implemented in a variety of languages, such as C, C++, Java. Below we provide the compiled codes for Intel Platforms runnning the Linux operating system. You should be able to use ost of the modules pretty straight forward.

However: Please note, that the present system is a Research Prototype under constant development, extension, modifications, etc. and by no means a production version. You are free to use it for non-commercial purposes (you would not seriously consider using it for commercial purposes anyway) as you please, and we would be happy to learn from your experiences. We will also try to help wherever we can - however, please be aware that we willnot be able to provide any guaranteed support for the system :-) If you think you really want to play around with the system in more detail, and possible fix some bugs that we have left there, or plan on extending or adapting it to your needs, we are happy to share the source code with you. In this case, just drop us an e-mail at, and we'll send you whatever you think you want or need.


We will keep adding further modules as soon as they become sufficiently stable so that we dare putting them up on this page (and as soon as we find the time to put them here). If you have any comments, questions, requests, corrections, improvements, etc. feel free to contact us. Have fun! :-D
