INSIDE ATLAS.ti May 2017


Jörg Hecker
Director of Business Operations ATLAS.ti

We welcome you to the latest issue of Inside ATLAS.ti. In this issue we update you on what has been going on this spring in terms of software development and the partnerships that we have with institutions worldwide. In this month's case study, we interview Mary Louisa Capelli, from Global Mother. Mary Louisa tells us about her research with the No Dakota Access Pipeline Standing Rock Protest Movement (No DAPL). In the Best Practices section, we will give you tips on working with geo-documents in ATLAS.ti 8.

Enjoy!

New Features in ATLAS.ti Mac and ATLAS.ti 8 Windows

A powerful keyword in context tool has been implemented in ATLAS.ti Mac. On the left-side Navigator, select the last icon from left to right. Then, write down a word or a combination of words and search for it. You can search in documents, in specific entities, or in the entire project. Additionally, now in ATLAS.ti 8 Windows you can search for a geo location by entering an address or by writing something generic as 'restaurants in Berlin'. You will see the locations pointed on the map. Following, you can associate codes to those locations, or simply transform them into free quotations. To do this, first add a geo-document and then select 'Query Address'. If you have any questions about these, or any other features, write to us to training@atlasti.com.
