Description of Text-Garden

Purpose and Functionality
Software Suite for dealing with unstructured data – in particular it covers (1) analysis of multiple modalities (such as text or social networks), (2) cross modal analysis, (3) components for  text and network visualization, (4) scalable implementations of many standard and newer analytic methods from the field of machine learning, text mining, kernel methods etc.

Availability, Preconditions and Licensing

Instalation package is publicly available in binaries at www.textmining.netThe software runs under Windows, Linux (partly) and has interface for working on Matlab, Java, Phyton, R. The tool is free for research purposes.

Integration with other SEKT Tools

Some components of Text-Garden are integrated into KAON2 , DocumentAtlas, OntoGen, SEKTbar, OntoClassify. The software tool was originally developed prior to the SEKT project and extended with some components inside the SEKT project.
