ATLAS, it is a computer program used mostly, but not exclusively, in qualitative research or qualitative data analysis. The purpose of ATLAS.ti is to help researchers uncover and systematically analyze complex phenomena hidden in unstructured data such as text, multimedia and geospatial. The program provides tools that let the user locate, code, and annotate findings in primary data material, to weigh and evaluate their importance, and to visualize the often-complex relations between them.
ATLAS.ti is used by researchers and practitioners in a wide variety of fields including anthropology, arts, architecture, communication, criminology, economics, educational sciences, engineering, ethnological studies, management studies, market research, quality management, psychology and sociology.
ATLAS.ti offers an unsurpassed range of media for you to work with whether it’s coding hundreds of documents, audio clips or photos.
Work with text documents in all major formats–including txt,.doc, .docx, .odt, and, of course, .pdf. Perform fully automated searches across one or multiple documents, auto-coding, and other powerful semantic operations to extract meaning.
Enjoy the freedom of working with dozens of graphic and audio formats (.wav, mp3, .wma, etc.) as well as most common video types (.avi, .mp4, .wmv, etc.).
