I analyze online political conversations and I am characterizing both edges and vertices with several (at least 2) qualitative attributes, additionally edges are weighted based on two qualitatively different scales.
I am looking for a tool that will help me sort, visualize, and run algorithms taking into account the different attributes - easily visualizing attributes both on the vertices and the edges, as well as different network's parts and configurations based on the different attributes and the relations among them.
Ideally I would also need the software to aid me coding and minimize human error (e.g. setting up drop-down menus
or other features to easily attribute a value or code once the coding
schemes are established).
Last but not least, I am also connecting in a network "cases" or edges that are
not necessarily people but comments or chunks of them, which will then be folded into sociograms based on who posted those comments.
I have seen NVivo Plus has a network analysis tool now and it does label edges as well as attributes. Does anyone know how nuanced and in depth that goes? Would anyone recommend that or other tools?
