Index, Search and Visualize What's Inside Large Documents Collections with Overview

Overview is a free tool for investigative journalists, researchers, and other curious people to explore large sets of text documents -- anything from PDFs to tweets.…

 

Robin Good's insight:

 

 

Overview is a new free tool designed for investigative journalists and researchers interested in finding relevant information within large collections of text documents, from reports to social media tweets.

 

Overview greatly simplifies the task of analyzing, indexing and visualising large document collections in ways that can allow a journalist to identify relevant patterns and threads across thousands of different documents.

 

Overview is an open-source document mining system which allows you to upload thousands of documents either in PDF format, via theDocumentCloud or through a CSV spreadsheet file. These documents can be rapidly indexed, sorted and analyzed in order to present an organized visual overview of their contents. 

 

"Whether you are a journalist starting with thousands of pages of government documents, a reasearcher facing a huge archive, or a social media analyst starting with 100,000 posts, Overview will organize your documents into topics and sub-topics, and then visualize them -- so you can find exactly what you're looking for, instantly count the number of documents in each topic, or tag entire topics for further work."

 

Free to use. Open-source.

Overview is a project of The Associated Press, supported by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation as part of its Knight News Challenge.

 

Overview is the result of the work of Jonathan Strayand Jonas Karlsson

How TO Host A Scoopit Newsletter / Landingpage FREE on Google Drive

How TO Host A Scoopit Newsletter / Landingpage FREE on Google Drive | Educational technology , Erate, Broadband and Connectivity | Scoop.it

Found A Cool Use for Scoop.it's new Newsletter feature. It is easy to create a content landing page and host it free with Google Drive. 

Here's How...

1. Create a newsletter using the Manage > Create A Newsletter

 

2. Download as a Zip file. Open the Zip file.

 

3. Upload the HTML file to your Google drive into a public folder.

 

4. Click on the HTML file. A window pops up, click on OPEN in lower right corner. 

 

5. Click on preview. Copy the URL that appears in the browser window:

https://googledrive.com/host/0B0eG3a8zValDQjl6aldwQlJMNDg/email%203.html ;

Next figuring out how to add a Call To Action and subscription code.  BTW, Unbounce charges $700 a year to host landing pages :). 

 

Also works on DropBox. 

The Free Alternative
The interesting question is could you create a web marketing business with NO money for websites or blogs? Yes is the answer to that question. By using free tools such as Google Drive, Scoop.it and Blogger or WordPress you could create a business without paying anything to web development. 

You might find that business is limited in scale, but so what. Your cost is  limited to your sweat equity to create a revenue stream and THEN buy the website improvements you need to go to the next level. I just build a MagentoGo store (Story of Cancer Store: http://storyofcancer.gostorego.com/ ;) and the same thing is ALMOST true for Ecom.

 

Between Storify, Volusion and Magento you can create a store for sweat equity + $500 (give or take). My little store has already made $130 inside of its first month so well on its way to paying for its serving costs. 

The ultimate lesson of crowdfunding and crowdsourcing is DO NOTHING until it is worth the investment to do so :).
