Explore, present and share with visualizations

NVivo for Mac provides a suite of visualizations that help you to gain deeper insights from your data. Explore and unearth patterns, trends and connections. Create effective visual outputs to share your findings in reports, publications and presentations. 


Coding stripes and highlights

See how data has been coded by displaying coloured coding stripes and highlighting - a great way to review and manage coding as you work.
See where you're up to, review your progress and uncode, or quickly correct your coding if you change your mind. You can show up to 200 coding stripes, and even print coding stripes to review in hard copy or share.
If multiple people are coding, use coding stripes to view and compare coding, and check for consistency. If you're working in a team you can see one, or several team members' coding.


Word trees

Search for words and phrases using Text Search queries, then visualize results in a Word Tree. See the context surrounding words and phrases from across your data. Discover recurring themes and phrases that surround a word of interest that can take you down new paths of investigation and directions for your research.

Word clouds

Quickly discover the most frequently occurring words and phrases in your data using Word Frequency Queries and display your results in a Word Cloud, where font sizes represent how frequently terms occur. You can choose to visualize the key terms within specific data sources, themes or across your whole project. Choose from a gallery of stunning options and create outputs that can be added to reports or shared in presentations.

Explore diagrams

Explore Diagrams let you explore the connections between your project items visually. See how project items relate to a central item and navigate through the connections to go deeper. Use Explore Diagrams to quickly and easily discover and share the connections that are forming in your data as you're moving through your analysis.

Mind maps

Use Mind Maps as a brainstorming tool and to visualize your thoughts and ideas. Start with a central topic or main idea, then map out ideas that relate to the central topic with connectors and shapes. Reflect on what you think about a topic quickly and spontaneously while ideas are flowing.

Use Mind Maps at the beginning of a project to explore expectations and initial theories, then later on map out and create your node structure visually. 


Hierarchical charts

Hierarchical charts are tree maps and sunbursts which use nested shapes of varying sizes and colors to visualize and compare data and themes, and see how data has been categorized. Use them to easily visualize the key emergent themes in your data as you work through your analysis. Discover the sub-themes that contribute to the primary themes. Answer questions like, "Are themes evenly spread over my sources, or are they coming from a small group?".

Comparison Diagrams

Comparison Diagrams offer a quick and easy method to visualize the similarities and differences between project items throughout your research process. Visually compare two sources, nodes or cases to quickly see what they share in common and what is different.
