Abstract: As a geometric application of polarized log Hodge structures, we show the following. Let $ M_{H}^{{sm}}$ be a projective variety which is a compactification of the coarse moduli space of surfaces of general type constructed by Kawamata, Kollár, Shepherd-Barron, Alexeev, Mori, Karu, et al., and let $ \Gamma\backslash D_{\Sigma}$ be a log manifold which is the fine moduli space of polarized log Hodge structures constructed by Kato and Usui. If we take a suitable finite cover $ M'\to M_{i}$ of any irreducible component $ M_{i}$ of $ M_{H}^{{sm}}$, and if we assume the existence of a suitable fan $ \Sigma$, then there is an extended period map $ \psi :M'\to \Gamma \backslash D_{\Sigma}$ and its image is the analytic subspace associated to a separated compact algebraic space. The point is that, although $ \Gamma \backslash D_{\Sigma}$ is a `` log manifold" with slits, the image $ \psi (M')$ is not affected by these slits and is a classical familiar object: a separated compact algebraic space.
