Abstract

In Japan, in the high economic growth period in 1960's, a great number of cutting ground and embankment slopes were formed to construct many roads. They have been aging now, it is important to estimate the health of them and maintain effectually. So, in situs, we usually carry out many kinds of the geophysical exploration. However, there is not the technique to compound and interpret the result of each geophysical exploration in a numerical formula of the engineering now. Therefore, we notice to self-organizing maps (SOM) used widely in a field of the information processing engineering, and tried to interpret multidimensional data by integrating. In this paper, we classified the ground property by SOM. The classification result is relatively conformal with boring data. Therefore, it is recognized that it can be used to improve the interpretative accuracy of compound geophysical explorations.
