Web-service Designed by the HSE Centre for Digital Humanities Nominated for DH Awards 2017

The Easy Linavis web-service allows users to quickly transform a text or any other type of data into a graph, as well as study it by using a social network analysis. You don’t need any special programming skills to use this service.

The Digital Humanities Awards ceremony is held every year to spotlight new digital tools for humanities research. Projects are nominated in six categories, including 'Best Tool or Set of Tools'. The Easy Linavis web-service was nominated in this category. It was developed under the Digital Literary Studies RSG led by Frank Fischer who works at the HSE Centre for Digital Humanities and is an assistant professor at the HSE School of Linguistics.  

Easy Linavis was designed for rapid manual extraction of network structures from literary texts, including works of fiction, film scripts, etc. The system’s functionality allows users to create graphs based on all types of data that can be formalized in this fashion. The service was presented at the DH Russia Conference held at Siberian Federal University. Moreover, Easy Linavis offers several sample pre-installed networks, including a network of characters from Leo Tolstoy's drama The Power of Darkness.
