How can I normalize data between 0 and 1 ? I want to use logsig...

All is in the question: I want to use logsig as a transfer function for the hidden neurones so I have to normalize data between 0 and 1. The mapminmax function in NN tool box normalize data between -1 and 1 so it does not correspond to what I'm looking for.

 bla = 100.*randn(1,10)
 norm_data = (bla - min(bla)) / ( max(bla) - min(bla) )

Thank you for your response. But if I do the normalization manually and train the NN with the normalized data, how can I test the net with new data? normalize them before simulation? if so how can I de-normalize the output calculated from unseen data? It seems complicated (mapminmax do all the stuff automatically)

Yes, provided you use the same normalization bounds (the min and max of both datasets). To rescale, please look at the below code.

bla = 100.*randn(1,10)
minVal = min(bla);
maxVal = max(bla);
norm_data = (bla - minVal) / ( maxVal - minVal )
your_original_data = minVal + norm_data.*(maxVal - minVal)

NDATA = mat2gray(DATA);
