STATISTICA Text Miner is an optional extension of STATISTICA Data Miner, ideal for translating unstructured text data into meaningful, valuable nuggets of decision-making "gold." The Text Miner application can be used to analyze the contents of web pages, analyze large document repositories and include unstructured notes in predictive data mining projects.
STATISTICA Text Miner was specifically designed as a general and open-architecture tool for mining unstructured information. The feature extraction/selection and other analytic tools available in STATISTICA Text Miner are not only applicable to text documents or Web pages, but can also be used to index, classify, cluster or otherwise include in your analyses unstructured information such as (pre-processed) bitmaps imported as data matrices, etc.
