First full resolution collage

The following images are the result of a 789×170 unit SOM where the initial weights are determined by the original panorama source. The training was done without modification, thus large initial neighbourhoods obliterate much of that initial structure. The number of units in the SOM make the segments too broadly distributed with large gaps between segments. The idea is to control the learning rate and neighbourhood size in the modified training routine such that the segments are located near where they are in the pano at the bottom and become increasingly self-organized at the top. I’ll try a smaller SOM next so there is hopefully more overlap between neighbouring segments.
