Final Thesis: Meta Model Visualization for QDAcity

Abstract: The web app QDAcity supports the process of qualitative data analysis (QDA). Among other things QDAcity can aid users during the coding process. A unique feature of QDAcity is that the user can classify codes of their code system using a meta model. The meta model helps in structuring the code system and expressing semantic relationships between codes. This thesis develops an interactive visualization of the meta model of QDAcity. The visualization could help in overviewing, communicating, and manipulating the meta model.

Keywords: QDAcity, meta model, visualization, cloud Application, qualitative data analysis.
