TEXTREND: Development of a business and governmental decision support toolbox using trend- and text-analysis tools
The goal of TEXTrend platform is the in-depth analysis of dynamic information on the web for science or business. In contrast to the usual extracting or indexing services, this toolkit aims at retrieving an essentially new type of information from the data volumes accessible on the web. An example is trend analysis, the aim of which is to determine or predict the characteristics of public opinion and its changes with time on the basis of massive amounts of documents (blogs, articles, etc.). Another example is the exploration of latent social structures by automatic text processing, network algorithms and visualisation, such as the extraction of a power-and-impact network of a field.
As of December 11. 2011, the core TEXTrend toolkit (TT/CIShell) exists in version v1.0, free to download and use. TEXTrend integrates UIMA (for preprocessing and NLP), WEKA(classification), R (statistical analysis), Cytoscape (network visualization), Cfinder(clique analysis) and several other components. For a documentation chech back later or consult us.
