Does anyone here recommend any QDA software packages? At the AAA this weekend I picked up demos for Provalis, MAXqda, and ATLAS.ti. I primarily work with coding interviews and arranging them in thematic networks, so I'm interested in something that will help me construct good visualizations of networks or semantic maps. I guess I wouldn't mind something that was also good with coding photographs or pictures, but not mandatory.

I've experimented a little bit with an open source package called RQDA, and it's not bad, but I wouldn't mind investing in a licensed package.

Any comments greatly appreciated!

I used the Atlas.ti to code interviews and visualize networks and maps. It's relatively user-friendly. The only drawback I saw was that it's only available for Windows.

One of my professors uses ATLAS.ti and our class worked with it a bit--seems like a fairly straightforward, well organized system. Report back if you have time--I'd like to know!

You might want to also consider NVivo.

QDA Miner from Provalis is the best QDA Software on the market. I use it for my Phd Thesis. It's easy to use and provides visualizations tools of networks.
