HEURIST is an extremely flexible data management system designed specifically for Humanities data - see http://HeuristNetwork.org. It is available as a free web service for researchers (hosted at the University of Sydney Data Centre) or for local installation (Open Source). Any confident researcher can design, create, manage, analyse, visualise and publish their own richly-structured database(s) through a simple web interface, without programmers or consultants. Quite complex databases can be built in a few hours through borrowing structures and vocabularies published by other users. Databases can be designed and built incrementally, as existing data are not affected by changes in structure. Advanced features include record linking, drilldown facet searches, rule-based queries, custom reports, linked map-timelines, network visualisation, normalised spreadsheet import, crosstabulation, XML feeds, XSLT transforms.

Users of the timeline can press "play" to watch the timeline scroll forward and the map zoom from place to place as they highlight each event (and the researcher's attached images and text) in turn. Users can also pause the progress of history, move forward or back at their own pace, and zoom in or out of either the map or timeline to examine areas of interest.

This software is for indexing and searching Word docx files, HTML files, XML files, text files or files of a similar kind (such as XML files) in any folder of a hard disk, CD-ROM, etc.
This program does not simply create a list of files or simply search for character strings in a file. It indexes every word in every file, and any file containing a particular set of words (or any of those words, or an exact phrase) can be found by searching for those words. Indexed files can be edited lightly without needing to re-index.

Overview is built to do several types of tasks:
It is highly interactive and allows a researcher to extend their work from a dedicated graph analysis package such as Gephi and share it via the web to allow for communication of research outputs, while permitting viewers to explore and discover their own findings from the raw graph network.
CulturalAnalytics is an R package containing functions for statistical analysis and plotting of image properties, including statistics such as the standard deviation and mean in the RGB and HSV color spaces, image entropy and histograms in greyscale (intensity) and color, and for plotting color clouds and image scatter charts.
