Text Explorer

Explore Unstructured Text in Your Data

Many features in this platform are available only in JMP Pro and noted with this icon.

The Text Explorer platform enables you to analyze unstructured text, such as comment fields in surveys or incident reports. Interact with the text data by using tools to combine similar terms, recode misspecified terms, and understand the underlying patterns in your textual data.

The JMP Pro version of the platform also contains analysis tools that use singular value decomposition (SVD) to group similar documents into topics. You can cluster text documents or cluster terms that are in a collection of documents. You can also cluster documents using latent class analysis.
