This blog is intended for readers to provide an overview of using the Facets Tool. You will learn the concepts of why Facets Tool should be used, how you can open the Facets tool, what are the components of the Facets tool, how to select facets to compare, exploring the relationships between the documents, using facets with other IN-SPIRE tools.
Why use Facets Tool?
Facets tool is used to examine relationships between computed themes and groups that you've previously established. You may examine aggregate statistics for each group (or focus) within a particular folder (or aspect) to compare and contrast relationships between groupings once groups of words have been generated and sorted into folders using the Groups tool.
You may use the Facets tool to:
Opening the Facets Tool
On the main toolbar of IN-SPIRE, click on the Facets button, or Select Tools -> Facets from the main menubar. The "Themes" facet appears when the Facets tool is opened.
Facets Window Components
The numbers on the Facets window image correspond to the numbers above.
Select the facets you would like to compare
Facets represent the dataset aspects. In the Groups Tool, each facet is a folder that can include groups computed by IN-SPIRE or groups you've created:
To Add a Facet
To add a facet column, click the button in the upper-right corner of the window.
Replacing one facet with another
To see a list of facets that have yet to be allocated to columns, click the facet column header. To replace the current column, choose one from the list.
Removing a Facet
Select the "x" in the right-hand column header of the facet.
Exploring Document Relationships
Using Facets to Select Documents
Facets can be used to find documents that are of special interest to you. Select a focus that you'd want to learn more about.
Effects of Repeated Selections
If you would like to "drill down" to qualities that many facets (groups of documents) share, repeated choices are highly beneficial. When you pick one focus and then select another, both of them will be chosen. All documents that fall within both focuses will be chosen. This procedure has no limitations on the kind of foci that may be chosen or the number of foci that can be chosen.
Click the "clear selection" link at the top of the screen to deselect all documents.
Effect of Document Selection Outside of Facets
Facets react to the choices you make elsewhere in IN-SPIRE. Select the documents with Facets open.
Using Facets with Other IN-SPIRE Tools
You can choose documents using Facets or any other tool, as stated above, and if a document is chosen in any tool, it would also be selected in Facets. Because of this compatibility, you may limit your attention to only the documents that you find most interesting, read them in the Document Viewer, organize them using Groups, or see where they are plotted in the Galaxy, for example.
We hope this blog has given sufficient details about using Facets tools. With this session, you have comprehended how to add and remove facets, how to select documents by using facets and clear those selections, etc.
