We are happy to announce that version 4.2 can now be worked with at http://www.digitalhumanities.it/catma Please see the release notes for further details.
We are giving a workshop on a collaborative, indeterministic and partly automatized approach to text annotation including a hands on session with CATMA. We’ll be around througout DH 2014, so even if you can not make it to the workshop do not hesitate to contact us if you want to know more about CATMA.
Texts are often the primary objects of interest in literary studies and in the Humanities in general. Though it getting increasingly common to use computational methods for analyzing texts, methods of visualization could not yet prevail. This issue is subject to a workshop that is held within the frameworks of the TransCoop project
DCI – The Digital Commons Initiative
which is funded by the Alexander-von-Humboldt-Foundation. The workshop is organized by the DCI team in cooperation with the team of the eHumanities project heureCLÉA around Prof. Jan Christoph Meister. The invited academics from different countries and continents hold expertise in computer science, linguistics, literary studies, and historial science. Together, they will discuss how the results of textual analysis can fruitfully be processed through data visualization. The envisaged outcome of the workshop is to develop visualization-prototypes that are adjusted to the specifics of different types of text analytical research questions. This methodologically informed preselection of practical visualizations will enable newcomers to benefit from the value of visualizations.
CATMA 4 now runs on stronger hardware which will bring a bit of relief as far as the performance is concerned. However we will also make changes to the CATMA architecture during the next weeks which will improve things further.
CATMA will be moving to new hardware this weekend, so expect downtimes on Saturday August 17 2013. We will keep the downtime as short as possible.
The last maintenance release also integrates DoubleTreeJS into CATMA. DoubleTreeJS is a cool keyword in context visualisation made by Chris Culy.
The CATMA team is proud to announce that CATMA 4 is now ready for use. CATMA 4 is implemented as a web application and can be found under the following link:
The release of CATMA 4 entails the relaunch of this website, which is now fit to present the newest version of CATMA. It is to be noted though that, at the moment, not all of the planned features of the application are available yet.
The CATMA team is very pleased to announce that Google funds the further development of CLÉA (Collaboratve Literature Éxploration an Annotation Environment) with 50000 USD. CLÉA will be a CATMA based web application for the annotation and exploration of large corpora of texts such as Google Books.
