Abstract : In data analysis new forms of complex data have to be considered like for example (symbolic data, functional data, web data, trees, SQL query and multimedia data, ...). In this context classical data analysis for knowledge discovery based on calculating the center of gravity can not be used because input are not $\mathbb{R}^p$ vectors. In this paper, we present an application on real world symbolic data using the self-organizing map. To this end, we propose an extension of the self-organizing map that can handle symbolic data.
