Case-Based Reasoning (CBR) is a methodology that reuses the solutions of previous similar problems to solve new problems. Adaptation is the most difficult stage in the CBR cycle, especially, when the solution space is multi-dimensional. This paper discusses the adaptation of a high dimensional solution space and proposes a possible approach to it. A Visualisation induced Self Organising Map (ViSOM) is used to map the problem space and solution space first, then a Back Propagation (BP) network is applied to analyse the relations between these two maps. A simple military scenario is used as a case study for evaluation purposes.
