This document explains how to use a VP script to create network files to do network analysis and visualize data with Gephi software. The Gephi software installer is available at https://gephi.org. This documentation applies to VP 10.0 and Gephi 0.9.1 or newer. Continue reading GEPHI: Creating Gexf network files with VantagePoint v10.0
This development responds to a challenge. Text mining software can conveniently generate very large sets of terms or phrases. Our examples draw from use of VantagePoint (or equivalently, Thomson Data Analyzer – TDA) software  to analyze abstract record sets. Continue reading Text Clumping for Technical Intelligence
The first place to start before deciding if an import filter can be built for a non-standard source of data is understanding structured data and regular expression. Click Login to view. for an introductory PowerPoint. Additional resources can be found in the VantagePoint “Help” files:

This 10 minute video showcases three example matrices (subject by country, publishing type by country, and cross-national collaboration), then demonstrates how to generate three matrix visualizations (matrix viewer, activity/diversity scattergram, Aduna Cluster Map) within VantagePoint.
This 15 minute video provides a short review of VantagePoint help resource; it outlines five exercises for viewer practice in the areas of critical MOT question identification, data search and import, data cleanup, data thesaurus enhancement, and dataset key term identification.
This 10 minute video goes through the process of identifying basic descriptors using single-field lists on a WOS nanotech dataset (e.g. “Top N” lists).
This 10 minute video reviews the steps for importing and cleaning data within VantagePoint, preparing it for analysis. Available filters and thesauri are demonstrated.
This 10 minute video provides an overview of the research profiling process, i.e. identifying: critical questions to ask, potential paths to answers, and required data. It also demonstrates a data search and download from Web of Science.
