A companion to our Text and Data Mining Sources infoguide, this guide will take you through how to use several text analysis tools

Text Analysis Tools

Text analysis identifies trends across a large number of text-based documents. While text analysis is frequently performed by software or a programming language, such as Python or R, there are several web-based tools that are entry points to this method. This guide describes how to text mine using a variety of free, web-based tools.

This guide is a companion to the Text and Data Mining Sources infoguide, which discusses how to access text and data mining sources.
