Digimind Graphs and Analysis
Digimind has a range of built-in graphs and analysis. They allow you to easily take a step back and see the bigger pictures in the information you collect or store into the platform. To find out more about the range of graphs read this post.
You choose to run an analysis based on validated information or stories you have saved into your projects or folders, and if you have been applying tags to these stories, you will be able to use the tags when generating graphs. To find out more about tags, follow this link.
Tags for graphs and Analysis
As you are setting up an analysis, click on the advanced options to open this window:
On the page you will define the information on which you want to run the analysis.
At the top of the page, you can filter the information with keywords so that only saved stories that include these terms will be used for the analysis.
If you select to use entities or lists as filters, you will also be able to specify how you would like to use the entities:
- Stories only = only saved stories that contain the keywords will be included in the analysis
- Tags only = only information that has been tagged with the tags on your list will be included
- Stories and tags = saved stories that contain the keywords and / or have been tagged with the tags on the list will be included in the analysis
If you do not specify any choices the default option is to look in both the saved stories and the tags.
Further down the page, you can specify a time period for the selection of information.
You are also able to define which date Digimind should use:
- publication date = the day on which the information was posted onto the internet
- creation date = the day on which the information was stored into a Digimind project
- update date = the day on which the latest modifications were made to the article inside its Digimind project
At the bottom of the page you can limit the analysis to certain projects and / or folders.
This project has been set up to collect information about payment methods, inclucing credit cards.
This first example shows the default option, the choice of stories and tags, and the choice of stories only:
The first two graphs are identical. This is to be expected at the default option for graph creation is to use the tags and the keywords in the saved stories.
The graph on the right is different, as it includes only saved information that includes the keywords contained in the list of tags. Any information to which a tag was added but does not contain the query as specified in the list is not included in this analysis.
This second example shows tags only compared to stories only:
The differences here in this example are largely explained by the fact that the tracker does not tag every piece of information, only those that have a tight focus on the subject. There are therefore usually less saved stories with tags.
