InkVisitor is an open-source, browser-based research environment designed to assist researchers in the humanities and social sciences in transforming texts into complex structured data for further exploration and analysis.
InkVisitor implements a specific method of text-oriented data collection, Computer-Assisted Semantic Text Modelling (CASTEMO), which is highly attentive to semantic detail and the qualities of the original expression. InkVisitor serves as a data-entry front-end for JSON-format research databases (RethinkDB). These databases allow for complex queries and render the data available for various kinds of computational analysis.
