QDA Miner offers higher levels of computer-assistance for qualitative coding, analysis, and report writing than any other qualitative data analysis software on the market today:
Intuitive on-screen coding and annotation of texts and images with features offering greater flexibility and ease-of-use, such as code splitting, merging, easy resizing of coded segments, interactive code searching and replacement or virtual grouping.
Flexible memoing and hyperlinking features to annotate documents and images and connect various pieces of qualitative evidence by creating links to other coded segments, cases, documents, files, or web sites.
Advanced Geotagging and Time-tagging tools to associate geographic and time coordinates to text segments or graphic areas, retrieve coded data based on time or location and plot events in space and time, create dynamic maps and interactive timelines.
Unique computer assistance for coding with more than seven text search tools including keyword search, section retrieval, a powerful query-by-example search tool that learns from the user, and a unique cluster extraction and coding tool.
Flexible coding retrieval tools for extracting coded segments associated with specific codes or code patterns and identifying coding co-occurrences, coding sequences and assessing relationships between coding and numerical or categorical properties.
Integrated statistical and visualization tools, such as clustering, multidimensional scaling, heatmaps, correspondence analysis and sequence analysis, allow one to quickly identify patterns and trends, explore data, describe, compare and test hypotheses.
Unprecedented teamwork support with flexible multi-user settings, a powerful merge feature for bringing together coding, annotations, reports, and log entries of multiple coders as well as an inter-raters agreement assessment module for assessing coding reliability.
A unique report manager tool allows to store queries and analysis results, tables, graphs, research notes and quotes in a single location. Its outliner design is ideal for organizing findings and interpretations, assisting qualitative researchers in the report-writing process.
A powerful command log keeps track of every project access, coding operation, transformation, query, and analysis performed. It may be used to document the qualitative analysis process and supervising teamwork. It represents a detailed audit trail that helps ensure the transparency of the qualitative research process and enhances its credibility.
