General Document Analysis

Play Video The General Document Analysis tool is a new revolutionary analysis tool to help users analyze documents. This includes everyone, everywhere, including you. GDA comes loaded with sample templates for getting started in analysis. These templates can be exchanged between friends, associates, and anyone else when published on the Internet. Here are some examples if how GDA can help you with your documents:

Constitutional Analysis for historians, think tanks, non profits, teachers, high school students, university students, professors, researchers

Generic Document Analysis for anyone anywhere that has used a highlighter pen to figure out what is inside a document

Legislation Analysis for legislators, policy makers, staff, lawyers, citizens, think tanks, non profits, companies, government, teachers, high school students, university students, professors, researchers

Plain Language Analysis for writers, editors, linguists, executives, managers, staff, citizens, policy makers, lawyers, legislators, think tanks, non profits, companies, government, teachers, high school students, university students, professors, researchers

Policy Document Analysis for executives, managers, staff, citizens, policy makers, lawyers, legislators, think tanks, non profits, companies, government, teachers, high school students, university students, professors, researchers

Screen Plays Analysis for writers, editors, actors, directors, producers, television, film, sound, lighting, set designers

Rhetorical Document Analysis for anyone looking for signs of obfuscation

College essay Analysis for students engaged in all forms of writing, term papers, thesis, college, graduate, law, and medical school acceptance applications

GDA is simple to use:

You upload your document and press submit.

Your results are listed with color, status, and descriptive text of the finding.

Too much information, no problem, enable and disable the reports as you need to accomplish your analysis and study.

Need to modify or create a rule, just check show rules and author what you need.

Rules are grouped into services so that you can perform very different analysis within a single template.

Rules are independent of your uploaded file format. Your file can be an HTML, spreadsheet, or a text version of your document.

In the end metrics are gathered so that you can make quantitative comparisons.

The beauty of GDA is its ability for you to define your own rules. It comes preloaded with a set of rules that allow you to immediately start your studies while at the same time providing you with real world examples to help you synthesize your special rules for your world.

Policy Document Analysis

Stern Review Global Warming

In late 2006 we used the Plan Language Analysis (PLA) Tool to analyze a Global Warming document from the European union: "GREEN PAPER A European Strategy for Sustainable, Competitive and Secure Energy". Our findings are published on our PLA web portal.

From that experience an effort was initiated to try to understand how individuals, organizations, governments and international entities accomplish things. The following new services for a Policy Document Analysis surfaced: Broad Approaches, Institutions, Organizational Tool, and Nation State Tools.

Early in 2007 we were introduced to the Stern Review: The Economics of Climate Change. We subjected the Stern Review to our Generic Document Analysis (GDA) tool. This effort tool approximately 3 days to complete, including the writing of this report and updating the web portals. The findings are captured in a final analysis report  (pdf) and the individual GDA pervious analysis templates.

U.S. Climate Change Technology Program Strategic Plan

In December of 2006 the United States released the U.S. Climate Change Technology Program STRATEGIC PLAN from the Executive Office of the President, U.S. Climate Change Technology Program, 1000 Independence Avenue, SW, Washington, DC 20585, http://www.climatetechnology.gov . We analyzed this plan and the results are as follows:

GDA Theory

GDA is based on SAT technologies, an engineering tool.

It is a process and method instantiated with Internet technologies to analyze documents. It is not unlike an Internet search engine, however instead of returning web pages, GDA returns lines of text from a document under analysis. It begins with uploading a document or pointing to a directory of data, subjecting the data to an engine, and directing the engine to process the data based on user defined rules similar to Internet search engines. The user fills in search criteria, checks some boxes, and provides unique text descriptions related to a rule.

Our products share a common characteristic; the potential need for someone to process documents based on rules. The GDA rules deal with any topic that you need to address. Most of our initial products are based on the need to process and understand precisely written statements, but not all the products, including GDA, must slice and dice precise text. For example, it is trivial to add a rule to find all acronyms in a document. It is also possible to create rules to verify compliance to an outline. It is also simple to use GDA as a collection of highlighter pens (yellow, pink, orange, etc) on your document.
