Hi. I am a ATLAS.ti user/trainer/consultant. From your short project
description I think you can do it with ATLAS.ti. One of the tools in
ATLAS.ti's Workbench is a Query Tool.
These are the operators in the Query Tool (Manual, p. 162).
Three sets of operators are available. They are located within the
toolbar at the left edge of the Query Tool.
*Boolean *operators allow combinations of keywords according to set
operations. They are the most common operators used in
information retrieval systems.
*Semantic* operators exploit the network structures that were built
from the codes.
Proximity *operators are used to analyze the spatial relations (e.g.,
distance, embeddedness, overlapping, co-occurrence) between coded data
With the tool you can do many forms of complex queries, on your full
data set, parts of your dataset.... It also has a Network Tool which is
basically a Social Network Tool.
Together with the other tools in the Workbench you can lots of things.
You can also export data to matrix, xml, SPSS and various forms of reports.
Here is a 300 pages manual: http://www.atlasti.com/downloads/atlman.pdf
If you have any questions regarding ATLAS.ti I am happy to reply to them.
If you decide to try it here is a trial version:
If you decide to buy it i can help you with that, I am ATLAS.ti partner
The software have a lot of features and for beginners it can be tough to
learn. I provide customized training for the users needs. If you feel
you struggle with the software (how, which, what, why....then what...
etc.) I can provide support/training until your comfortable with it. I
do that often for PhD students using the software. I use a web
conference system often. With desktop sharing, voice +++ which works
very well. Particularly if you need on-demand support/training.
