We released a preview for the upcoming CATMA 5 which already includes a new look and some other UI improvements. The final release will contain additional functionality, so stay tuned.
On 27th November 2015 the CATMA team gave a workshop with scholars from a wide range of disciplines including literature, history, linguistics and more. The workshop provided an introduction to CATMA, a hands-on session and the showcasing of two larger projects that where executed with the help of CATMA.
Thanks to Roy for organizing this event!
CATMA and heureCLÉA are featured in the television show “Hamburgs Beste”. The topic of this episode is “digitization”. Digitization in the humanities, and with it CATMA and heureCLÉA, is addressed in the second part, starting at 6:50.
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.
