Search & code your data

Search for keywords in your data, memos and coded segments and use MAXQDA to automatically code them. Make use of the advanced search functions that offer you everything you might expect from professional data analysis software – and with the integration of retrieval and lemma functions, Boolean operators and wildcards, probably a little more.

Keyword in context

Use the tools offered by MAXDictio, our module for quantitative text analysis, to find even more in your data. Are you interested in the use of certain terms in your material? Use the Keyword-in-context feature to display all word locations and their (freely defineable) context in an interactive result table.

Visual Text Exploration

Explore the content and structure of your text without coding in advance, for example with MAXDictio’s Interactive Word Tree. It visualizes all the combinations that lead to or from any word of your choice, including a detailed display of frequencies.

Word clouds

Modern illustrations for word frequencies: Our word cloud generator with predefined layouts, color schemes and endless possibilities to adapt your cloud – not just to fit your presentation style, but to give you deeper insights into your data.

Document Portrait

With the Document Portrait you will be able to tell at a glance which factors played an important role at what point of your interviews. You can of course change the assignment of colors at any time throughout your analytical process with a few clicks.
