Text Analysis Portal for Research

From ToolCenter

TAPoR is building a unique human and computing infrastructure for text analysis across Canada by establishing six regional centers to form one national text analysis research project. A major development by the project is an online portal that is a gateway to tools for sophisticated analysis and retrieval, along with representative texts for experimentation. The local centers will also support text research laboratories with best-of-breed software and full-text servers that are coordinated into the national portal.

The TAPoR portal was released in alpha form on November 19th, 2004. It allow users to define texts that they want to study, define tools they use (from a collection of aggregated web services) and then run tools on texts where both the texts and tools could be running off remote servers. People interested in trying the beta of the portal should contact Lian Yan at lyan (at) mcmaster (dot) ca. He can give qualified people accounts to test the portal.

The portal will be released as "open source" so that units with the expertise can set up their own portals. We encouage people with tools to work with us to set them up as web services capable of operating through the portal. We also encouage people interested in just the tools to look at some of the tools suites independently of the portal. For example the TAPoRware tools are available for use online or for download independent of the portal.
