ULTIMO RILASCIO: 16 Gennaio 2023

ATLAS.ti is a powerful qualitative analysis software offering the greatest variety of tools for accomplishing all the tasks associated with a systematic approach to unstructured data, i.e. data that cannot be meaningfully analyzed by formal, statistical approaches. It helps you to explore the complex phenomena hidden in your textual and multimedia data. For coping with the inherent complexity of the tasks and the data, ATLAS.ti offers a powerful, intuitive environment that keeps you focused on the analyzed materials. It is a tightly integrated suite of tools that support your analysis of written texts, audio, video, and graphic data. The integration of its tools is designed to perfectly support the work flow of the qualitative researcher. Hence, ATLAS.ti brings to the job highly sophisticated tools to manage, extract, compare, explore, and reassemble meaningful segments of large amounts of data in flexible and creative, yet systematic ways.

 

ATLAS.TI – THE KNOWLEDGE WORKBENCH

The image of our software as a “knowledge workbench” is more than just a lively analogy. Analytical work involves tangible elements: research material requires piecework, assembly, reworking, complex layouts, and some special “tooling”. A well-stocked workbench provides you with the necessary instruments to thoroughly analyze and evaluate, search and query your data, to capture, visualize and share your findings.

 

SOFTWARE FOR CREATIVE ANALYSIS

A typical project deals with sifting through large sets of diverse documents, notes, and multi-media files, and examining and comparing such sources regarding a specific line of inquiry.  While the technical side of selecting, and organizing useful portions of your data might seem manageable when dealing with just a handful of source documents, it can tend to become overwhelming as the number of sources mount. Enter a specialized software package like ATLAS.ti: It lets you extract, categorize, and interlink data segments from a large variety and volume of source documents. Based on your analysis, the software supports you in discovering patterns and testing hypotheses. With numerous output options and collaboration tools, your analysis is easily accessible to yourself and others.

 

SOME BASIC TERMS AND CONCEPTS

To understand how ATLAS.ti handles data, visualize your entire project as an intelligent “container” that keeps track of all your data. This container is your ATLAS.ti project. The project keeps track of the paths to your source data and stores the codes, code groups, network views, etc. that you develop during your work. Your source data files are copied and stored in a repository. The standard option is for ATLAS.ti to manage the documents for you in its internal database. If you work with larger audio or video files, they can be linked “externally” to your project to preserve disk space. All files that you assign to the project (except those externally linked) are copied, i.e. a duplicate is made for ATLAS.ti’s use. Your original files remain intact and untouched in their original location. Your source data can consist of text documents (such as interviews, articles, reports); images (photos, screen shots, diagrams), audio recordings (interviews, broadcasts, music), video clips (audiovisual material), PDF files (papers, brochures, reports), and even geo data (locative data using Open Street Map). Once your various documents are added or linked to an ATLAS.ti project, your real work can begin. Most commonly, early project stages involve coding different data sources. Coding is the basic activity you engage in when using ATLAS.ti and is the basis of everything else you will do. In practical terms, coding refers to the process of assigning categories, concepts, or “codes” to segments of information that are of interest to your research objectives. We have modeled this function to correspond with the time-honored ATLAS.ti 8 Windows – Quick Tour BASIC CONCEPTS 7 practice of marking (underlining or highlighting) and annotating text passages in a book or other documents. In its central conceptual underpinnings, ATLAS.ti has drawn deliberately from what might be called the “paper and pencil paradigm.” The user interface is designed accordingly, and many of its processes are based on—and thus can be better understood by—this analogy. Because of this highly intuitive design principle, you will quickly come to appreciate the margin area as one of your most central and preferred work space—even though ATLAS.ti almost always offers a variety of ways to accomplish any given task.

New Code Co-Occurrence Tools

Arguably one of the most important analysis tools can be found in our code co-occurrence section. ATLAS.ti 23 introduces the next evolution of this popular analysis feature – offering substantial improvements that will make your analysis even more powerful, easier to use, and fun.

 

Visualize like never before

The newly designed results view presents overlapping co-occurrences in an intuitive and much easier-to-understand way than before, reducing the need to jump into the document for context. But that’s still only a click away, should the need arise. Of course, you can also modify your coding right from this view.

 

 

A brand-new visualization option shows co-occurrences on an interactive map: This enables you to identify clusters of co-occurring codes quickly, share beautiful and insightful graphs illustrating your research, and explore your data in a fun way.

 

Save valuable time

Finally, we’ve made it easier to explore co-occurrences directly from your data. Right-click on any code or multiple codes, choose one of the new analysis options, and they will take you right into the co-occurrence tool – with the relevant selections and options already made for you. This huge time-saver enables much more light-footed exploration of your data.

 

Advanced Auto Coding powered by AI

Hand-in-hand with the new co-occurrence tools, we have further developed our automatic coding tools.

 

Benefit from advanced search

Our previous release has already introduced full-text search with lemmatization and synonyms, named entity recognition, sentiment analysis, and search using regular expressions. These powerful machine-learning-based algorithms still run entirely offline on your device.

Leverage natural language processing

With ATLAS.ti 23, we have extended the capability of our auto coding tools’ ability to restrict a search to coded quotations. For example, you can now do a sentiment analysis and auto code all quotations coded with a specific code with just a few clicks.

 

 

UX Enhancements and New Visualizations

Jump straight into code-document analysis from any selection of codes or documents.

 

The word list and word cloud tools are now merged into one single tool and joined by a new TreeMap visualization.

 

We’ve updated the color palette of the word cloud for a more pleasing look.

 

The document manager now also features a TreeMap to get an overview of your most-coded documents quickly.

 

As always, we have worked on performance and made many usability improvements throughout the app.

 

ATLAS.ti Web Improvements

Concepts Report [Beta]

We believe that research should be easy. That’s why we are releasing Concepts Report for ATLAS.ti Web: a new feature that enables you to find relevant concepts for your topic right at your fingertips.
