See how all your Evernote notes are connected...

Recommended Posts

If you have a lot of different notes in your Evernote notebooks, it may be interesting to see how they are all connected. 

 

I developed an app that can do just that - visualize your notes as a graph, show you the most important connecting concepts, how they relate to each other, and where you have gaps in your knowledge.

 

It can be a very useful tool and I'd like to invite you to try it on http://www.infranodus.com (PM me for an invite, as it's a closed beta at the moment).

 

Also, you can read more about how it works on our blog: http://noduslabs.com/cases/evernote-iphone-notes-text-network-graph/

 

Thank you!

I have a couple of questions/remarks.

  • there is another app that does something similar: Mohiomap. But it only handles the notes in your synched notebooks. Is that the same for infraNodus?
  • are in internal links (i.e. links between notes) relevant?
  • are tags relevant? Mohiomap is tag-based.
  • is this a free app or is it payable?

Hi @DutchPete

 

Thank you for your questions.

 

1) The difference is huge. Mohiomaps simply visualizes how your notes are connected to your notebooks. InfraNodus visualizes the content of those notes. Using Textexture algorithm for text network analysis the software finds the most relevant terms in your notes and shows how those terms are connected. So you don't just see which notebooks your notes are a part of, but how exactly and through which words they connect. Also, a graph gives you an overview of all your notes at once. Regarding the notebooks – it retrieves all the notebooks that you currently have on your account, like a snapshot. If you change something, you need to make another import.

 

2) The notes are linked if they use the same words, hashtags or mentions – through those terms. So you can quickly see which terms connect the most notes.

3) Tags are relevant, but also the normal word contents of your notes is used. The words are normalized and converted into morphemes. It currently works for both English and Russian.

 

4) It's a free app and it's open-source (based on Node.Js, Sigma.Js and written in Javascript). You can install it on your own computer from http://github.com/noduslabs/infranodus or fork it and make your own version.

By the way, it can also function as a note-taking app – all your notes will be visualized in a graph and you will gradually see how the meaning emerges from interconnected words that you use more often together than others.

 

 

Let me know if you'd like to try it on our servers and I'll send you an invite. Or if you have Node.Js you can install it on your own machine.

Thank you for your prompt reply. I am interested to try out on my machine, so you'll have to post exact instructions.

One more question that has come after reading the comments on your website:

 

I use the same template every day for a journal entry. The template has a number of standard headings, which means those words will be seen by your app as being used very frequently, even though they do not represent anything special or add anything new as such. Will that not cloud the picture?

Hello Pete, it depends - you have to see. If you install the app on your local machine, you can add those words into the list of stopwords in the settings file. All the installation instructions are available on the GitHub page above and also in this Wiki: https://github.com/noduslabs/infranodus/wiki/Server-Setup

 

By the way, is there any reason you don't want to try it on http://infranodus.com first? You know, you can always erase all the notes you imported in one click, in case you don't want to store them somewhere else...

 

Thanks!

I will check out both the Github & wiki pages.

The reason I don't want to try it on your server is that there are notes with confidential info. But, thinking about it I could only try it out with the non-confidential notes right?

If so, I would just use that 1 particular notebook. Correct?

In fact, there was not this feature to choose which notebooks you want to import, but especially for you I added it and updated the version on http://infranodus.com so now you can select only 1 particular notebook for your import.

 

Thank you for your suggestion and let me know if you want more features – I'm constantly updating the app.

 

I also sent you a PM with an invitation code. Hope you enjoy it!
