ViTA Visual Text Analytics for Digital Humanities

ViTA is web-based a tool to visualize the contents of literature, especially novels. It parses ebooks, extracts data about characters, places or the text in general and is able to automatically generate different interactive visualizations that allow exploration of the text.

Try it out!

If you are missing a book that is public domain (e.g. the author died more than 70 years ago), feel free to provide us an ePub file so that we can add it.
