Uploading your data.

Uploading your data is relatively easy, and only takes a few steps.
If it is your first time logging into Raven’s Eye, if you otherwise have no projects uploaded, or if you select New Project from the dropdown menu bar behind the moving cogs, you will be taken to the Create a project page. This is the page on which you can upload data for analysis by Raven’s Eye.
Upload qualitative or textual data to our online natural language analysis software
You can upload data through one of three formats: pasting directly from your computer's clipboard, uploading a previously saved word processing file in .docx format, or uploading a previously saved spreadsheet in .csv, .xls, or .xlsx formats.

Pasting

To copy (or cut) text from a source and paste it into Raven's Eye for analysis as a project:
  • First, name the project. Place your cursor in the Project Name text box and type a project name that will assist you in keeping track of your projects.
Save your copied text as a project by first naming it
  • Second, select Cut & Paste from the Format dropdown menu. Upon doing so, a new text box will appear.
The dropdown menu allows you to select cut & paste
  • Third, highlight the text in the text box, and press delete (this removes the placeholder text from the text box). Then, copy (or cut) the text that you would like to analyze, and paste it into the text box. Remember to utilize the procedures discussed in Preparing your data to ensure that your text is formatted correctly before pasting it into the text box.
Paste your natural language text into the box
  • Lastly, click Upload Project in the menu bar. Your data will now be saved as a new project, and you will be taken to the results of its analysis.

Word Processing and spreadsheets

To upload a project saved in word processing or spreadsheet formats:
  • First, name the project. Place your cursor in the Project Name text box and type a project name that will assist you in keeping track of your projects.
Name your document or worksheet something appropriate to your project
  • Second, select the format of your data from the Format dropdown list. Choosing Document will allow you to upload both word-processing and spreadsheet files.
Upload spreadhsheet worksheets (xlsx, xls, csv) and word processing documents (docx)
  • Third, select Click To Select Your File in the menu bar by clicking on the phrase.
Upload your file from Windows PCs, Apple Macs, Androids, or iPhones
  • In the File Upload box that appears, navigate to the folder on your computer containing the file that you would like to upload. Select it by clicking on it, and then click the Open or Choose button in the bottom right-hand corner of the box. Remember, before uploading a word processing file, you will need to prepare its contents and save or export it in .docx format. Similarly, before uploading a spreadsheet file, you will need to prepare its contents and save or export it in .csv, .xls, or .xlsx formats.
Upload your file from any navigable folder on your computer, phone, tablet, or cloud
  • Once you have selected the file you want to upload, its name and file extension (e.g., .xls) will appear beneath the Format dropdown menu. Now, select Upload Project in the menu bar to upload your file as your new project.
Save your file to our cloud by selecting the upload project button
Your project is now uploaded to Raven’s Eye. If you uploaded a word processing document, you will be taken to your results. If, however, you uploaded a spreadsheet, you will be directed to the Column classification page. This page is described in the next section of these Practicals.
