What is NVivo?

NVivo is a powerful qualitative data analysis tool, with features that provide functionality far beyond that of the average statistics package. Rather than simple number-crunching, qualitative analysis is about managing, shaping and making sense of seemingly unstructured data. NVivo facilitates this analysis, producing trends and enabling the construction and demonstration of hypotheses.

Features include:

  • handling of multiple file formats including Word documents, PDFs, pictures, database tables, spreadsheets, audio files, videos, social media data and web pages
  • powerful query tools and automated analysis features
  • mobile data collection on multiple mobile devices, including iPhone, iPad, Android phone or tablet
  • visualisation tools such as charts, maps and models for displaying connections, ideas and findings
  • a transcription service through which you can order transcripts of audio and video files from within NVivo
