is a powerful workbench for the qualitative analysis of large
bodies of textual, graphical, audio and video data. It offers a variety of tools
for accomplishing the tasks associated with any systematic approach to "soft"
data--i.e., material which cannot be analyzed by formal, statistical approaches
in meaningful ways. ATLAS.ti provides unique support for all areas of document-
based analytical research and works with text, audio, and video material.
In the course of qualitative analysis,
ATLAS.ti helps you to explore the complex phenomena hidden in your
textual and multimedia data. For coping with the inherent complexity of the
tasks and the data, ATLAS.ti offers a powerful, intuitive environment that keeps
you focused on the analyzed materials. It offers sophisticated tools to manage,
extract, compare, explore, and reassemble meaningful segments of large amounts
of data in flexible and creative, yet systematic ways.

What's New in ATLAS.ti 7
For version 7, we have carefully reviewed every
single aspect of previous incarnations of ATLAS.ti and,
in close consultation with our users, have added new
features and made changes and improvements to existing
While the basic operations of ATLAS.ti (segmenting,
coding, memoing, etc.) remain the same, there are numerous
areas in which users will be delighted to find significant
changes. They make working with the program even smoother,
easier, faster, safer, and more productive than ever before.
All work flows have been examined and streamlined,
powerful--and in some cases, radically innovative--new
features added, and the overall experience significantly
There is so much to discover in the new, powerful ATLAS.ti 7, we don't
know where to start. Perhaps we start at the core--taking its legendary,
central VISE principle to a new level, ATLAS.ti 7 is "VISE-r" than ever:
Visualize: The margin reloaded: Work with audio and video just as
natural as you are used to with text and images. Code Tag Views, integrated
frequency bars, a superb new network editor, list previews of documents and
Integrate: Need for open windows drastically reduced. No need to
open multiple windows to visualize your data. Activate visuals right there
in the workspace you are using!
Serendipity: Create and navigate your hyperlinks between sections
of text, images, audio and video in the most natural synoptic way with up to
four documents of any kind displayed and interconnected, side-by-side.
Exploration: The co-occurrence table tool, the codes-documents
table, the neat side-panel filter area for the item managers, the search
field to comfortably find your way through thousands of items in
milliseconds, and a completely refurbished network editor.
And behind the scenes: A new powerful data management system that keeps
all your documents in a safe, scalable data repository (but without
compromising ATLAS.ti legendary extra light-weight approach, i.,e. WITHOUT
any servers to install or run, and without the size limitations that are
inherent of the add-on database servers most similar products rely on).
Pure, reliable performance!
We are convinced that version 7 is the best ATLAS.ti ever and once
again pushes the envelope, if not sets completely new standards, for
contemporary qualitative analysis software.
Compare ATLAS.ti with other products and judge for
Fact #1: Not just text. Work with any data
you want. Audio, video, image, and geo-data. In real-time.
Fact #2: Real and full PDF support. Only
ATLAS.ti lets you use PDF documents the way they were intended:
text, graphics, layout and all. Open a file and you're good to
go! No conversions, no stripping documents to naked ".txt"
files, no extracting images by hand.
Fact #3: Google Earth geo-data done
right--using the actual application. Code the world. Display
your codes inside Google Earth itself. Hyperlink places with any
data segment and vice versa.
Fact #4: No separate transcription software
to buy. It's already on-board.
Fact #5: Accepts more file formats than any
other QDA software for you to work with--including PDF natively.
Fact #6: Strong XML support.
Non-proprietary formats keep your data usable for decades, make
you independent from specific products, and allow for
unparalleled integration with all sorts of applications.
Fact #7: One package. Small download.

to get started. No complicated, resource-hungry database servers
to mess with, no add-on modules.
Fact #8: No need to dismember your data.
Use text, video and audio of unlimited length. As is. No need to
edit, slice, and chop before you can get started with your real

ATLAS.ti 8 for Windows is Coming!
ATLAS.ti 8 for Windows will be launched in
October. To make ATLAS.ti even more powerful, enjoyable and user-friendly, we
are incorporating the feedback and recommendations that beta testers have been
ATLAS.ti 8 for Windows comes with a set of
important new features, such as the ability to import Evernote documents,
Twitter posts, and bibliographic data from your favorite reference manager
software (e.g., EndNote, Mendeley, Zotero). Meanwhile, existing tools and
procedures have been improved and expanded. Examples of this include the word
cloud and word list, the project searching tool, the Query Tool and networks.
Now, word clouds and word lists can be generated in relation to the quotations
linked to a selected code or to an individual selected quotation, opening up new
avenues for discourse analysis. The former Object Crawler, now known as 'Project
Search,' allows for richer exploration of text across the entire project (i.e.,
documents, groups, codes, quotations and networks). The Query Tool has become
more intuitive than it was in earlier versions of the software, making it easy
to query the data in multiple ways. And the representation of relationships in
the form of networks is now dynamic, allowing for a variety of layouts, and more
attractive than it was before.
ATLAS.ti 8 for Windows has a complete new
interface design which will blow your mind. The modern new look makes it easier
than ever to navigate through your data. And best of all, ATLAS.ti licenses
purchased after April 1, 2015 qualify for a FREE UPGRADE once version 8 is
released. So there is no need to wait - start your analysis today, and switch to
ATLAS.ti 8 for free later.
