Search and analyze topic maps
- Search topics with regular expressions, find similar topics, and use Wandora's query language to perform more complex searches.
- Compare topic maps.
- Clustering coefficient for any topic set including average clustering coefficient of a topic map.
- Topic map diameter and average path length.
- Topic map connection count and distribution (Topic map degree distribution).
- SOM classifier to analyze topics with associations.
- R language integration makes Wandora a data source for R environment.
Export and publish
- Wandora can export topic maps in XTM, LTM and JTM format.
- Export topic map as a collection of static HTML pages.
- Export topic maps as Graph Modeling Language, GraphML, and GraphXML graphs.
- Embedded HTTP server allows you to publish topic maps as a dynamic HTML site, RSS feed or pretty much anything if you just write suitable templates for your output.
- Included outputs: HTML, RSS instance feed, ATOM topic, Wandora Web Service.
- We have created several Wandora Drupal extras to show you examples how Wandora can be used together with Drupal content management system.
- We have also created an extra for Joomla content management system to demonstrate how to publish Wandora content in Joomla sites.
- Build your own topic map application using Wandora's Web Service.
- You can also create new output modules to Wandora easily. See chapter Setting up new services at Embedded HTTP server.
- Wandora Piccolo combination allows you to set up a large scale dynamic WWW site based on the topic maps.
Edit topic maps
Wandora contains a huge collection of topic map editing features. You can not only edit topics and associations directly but also transform topic's internal structures -- such as occurrences to other structures -- such as variant names. You can also choose to apply editing feature to not just one topic but a collection of topics which speeds up topic map refactoring substantially. See Wandora's documentation for details.
Generate simple topic map graphs
- Random graph generator
- Fully connected graph generator
- Tree graph generator
- Linear list graph generator
- Finite group graph generator
- Platonic solid graph generator
- Hypercube graph generator
- Tiling graph generator
- Edge generator
- Generate topic maps with L-systems.
- Tools that process topic map, for example cleaning or reconstructing data
- Importing data in different formats, for example from existing relational database
- Exporting data in different formats
- Reading and automatic processing of metadata from a collection of files
- Customized ways to represent the data in the topic map
