Annotate, Analyze, Interpret and Visualize
In CATMA you can work the way, which best fits your research question: qualitative or quantitative, bottom-up and exploratory or descriptive and taxonomy-guided, individually or in a team—you choose.
CATMA knows no dogma, is available for free and runs in your browser.

CATMA 6 is project-centred. You can upload your own corpus, share it with your team and work on it collaboratively. You work in more than one project, with different team members each? In CATMA you can manage as many projects as you like.
CATMA allows you to develop your own tagsets, or import an existing one. Whether you prefer to work taxonomy-based or create your categories on the fly, CATMA supports both approaches. The choice is yours: develop your own text interpretation bottom-up, or top-down against the backdrop of a predefined theory and taxonomy.
Annotation is fundamental to all humanities research. Some of it is declarative and taxonomy-driven, but often it is also of an interpretive or exploratory nature. CATMA is non-prescriptive in this regard and allows you to annotate your texts in an undogmatic fashion where required: multiple, overlapping, short, extensive, discontinuous or even in contradictory variants—in CATMA annotations can take on many forms!
CATMA provides a choice of several interactive visualizations. From word clouds to distribution graphs or networks, you can select the perfect visualization for your data!
What CATMA Users Say
Create Your Own Set of Categories
With CATMA you can develop as many annotation categories as you need. Either use a pre-existing methodology to create a tagset before annotating your text, or create your tags on the fly.
