Developer Quick Start Now Available

The Constellate team has published a "Developer Quickstart".

What is a Constellate keyphrase?

We have added keyphrases to Constellate. Each keyphrase is up to three words contained in the document. Together they provide a concise summary of the document.

New Term Frequency Visualization

A new term frequency visualization is now available on the Constellate platform. Analyzing term frequencies is an effective method for initiating text analysis research, it helps determine the “aboutness” of a document or textual corpus.
