More qualitative data analysis features and tools than comparable products:
Intuitive on-screen coding and annotation of text and images with features offering greater flexibility and ease-of-use, such as code splitting, merging, easy resizing of coded segments, interactive code searching and replacement or virtual grouping
Flexible memo and hyperlink features to annotate documents and images and connect various pieces of qualitative evidence by creating links to other coded segments, cases, documents, files, or web sites.
Advanced geotagging and time-tagging tools to associate geographic and time coordinates to text segments or graphic areas, retrieve coded data based on time or location and plot events in space and time, create dynamic maps and interactive timelines.
Unique computer assisted coding with more than seven text search tools including keyword search, section retrieval, a powerful query-by-example search tool that learns from the user, and a unique cluster extraction and coding tool.
Flexible code retrieval tools for extracting coded segments associated with specific codes or code patterns and identifying coding co-occurrences, coding sequences and assessing relationships between coding and numerical or categorical properties.
Integrated geocoding to transform references to cities, states, provinces, countries, postal codes, and IP addresses into geographical coordinates. The GISViewer mapping module allows you to create data point maps, distribution maps and heat maps.
IMPORT DIRECTLY from web surveys platforms, social media, major email providers, and reference manager tools.
Integrated statistical and visualisation tools for clustering, multidimensional scaling, heatmaps, correspondence analysis and sequence analysis. Quickly identify patterns and trends, explore data, describe, compare and test hypotheses.
The command log tracks project access, coding operations, transformation, queries, and analyses performed. Use it to document the qualitative analysis process and supervise teamwork. It is a detailed audit trail ensuring transparency of the qualitative research process, enhancing credibility.
