About Gargantext

Gargantext is a collaborative web platform with the support of the Complex Systems Institute of Paris Ile-de-France  and its partners. It aims at the exploration of sets of unstructured documents. It combines tools from natural language processing, text-mining, complex networks analysis and interactive data visualization to pave the way toward new kinds of interactions with your digital corpora. In few minutes, you will be able to do knowledge maps, collaborative state-of-the-art, portfolio analysis and many other crazy things. Say good-bye to headaches in front of thousands of document to analyze and launch yourself into the Gargantext adventure.

This software is free software, developed by the CNRS Complex Systems Institute of Paris Île-de-France (ISC-PIF) and its partners.
