QDA Miner is an easy-to-use qualitative data analysis software package for coding, annotating, retrieving and analyzing small and large collections of documents and images. The QDA Miner qualitative data analysis tools may be used to analyze interview or focus group transcripts, legal documents, journal articles, speeches, even entire books, as well as drawings, photographs, paintings, and other types of visual documents.
More qualitative data analysis features and tools than comparable products:
Import Word, Excel, HTML, XML, SPSS, Stata, NVivo, PDFs, as well as images. Connect and directly import from social media, emails, web survey platforms, reference management tools, LexisNexis, and Factiva.
Associate geographic and time coordinates to text segments. Retrieve coded data, based on time and location, and plot events on timelines and maps.
Explore data, and identify patterns and trends using integrated statistical and visualization tools such as word cloud, clustering, multidimensional scaling, correspondence analysis, or quotation matrix.
Achieve faster and more reliable coding with more than seven text search tools including keyword search, section retrieval, a powerful query-by-example search that learns from the user, and a unique cluster extraction that automatically groups similar text segments.
Use flexible coding 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.
Store queries and analysis results, tables, graphs, notes, and quotes in a single location. This is ideal for organizing findings, and quickly generating reports.
Keep track of every project access, coding operation, transformation, query, and analysis performed with the assistance of the powerful command log tool. Useful to document the qualitative analysis process and to supervise teamwork.
Code and annotate text segments and images using features that provide greater flexibility and ease of use.
Get unparalleled teamwork support with multiuser settings, a coding merge feature, annotations, an inter-rater agreement module for assessing coding reliability, and use the command log function to review code entries.
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.
