Big Galileo Viewer on Mac!

This terrific app allows you to view Galileo Sociology Research data.

The Galileo System is a suite of software for Social Science research initiated by Richard Holmes and further developed by the author of this App, from 1981-1986 while at SUNY Albany in New York, for Dr Joseph Woelfel. Galileo software works with the numerical relationships between words and phrases relating to a particular subject to show a rich 3D space that expresses a population's attitudes towards that subject. The subject in the sample data for the app shows people's attitudes towards animals. The animals that are close together in the 3D map were reported to be close together numerically by the population. The animals that are far apart in the 3D map were reported to be far apart numerically. The author is one of the developers of several components of the original Galileo software as well as the software framework that allows researchers to perform the full project lifecycle of Galileo social science research, from free-form text analysis to extract relevant concepts to gathering relationships between the concepts to display of resultant data.

Your professor will put the Galileo data (or other compatible data) on the web site and you will be able to view it in 3D with this App. If you have data in the form of a file, load it into the app and view it as well. If you just want to explore the Galileo data experience, use the sample data provided.

Enter the URL where the data set is located and the app will read it!

The datasets you will view are Galileo Coordinates in their original 80 character per record format. Please consult your professor if you are unable to view the data.

Thanks for your feedback! If you love this App, please give us lots of stars!
