EEA Corpus (alpha stage)


This docker image is based on spaCy, Textacy, pyLDAvis & others to analyse the EEA Corpus (the collection of all published EEA documents) or any other CSV file with a column of text.

It provides a number of Machine Learning and Natural Language Processing algorthims that can be run on top of the EEA Corpus or a subset of it.

The idea is to provide these methods over a REST API when possible.

Current features

Compose a text transformation pipeline to prepare a corpus

First upload a CSV file, then use the “Create a corpus” button to enter the pipeline composition page.

Create and visualise topic models via pyLDAvis.

The topics are found via a text-mining technique called Topic Modeling.

In machine learning and natural language processing, a topic model is a type of statistical model for discovering the abstract “topics” that occur in a collection of documents.

Video demonstration

LDA visualisation

How to run:

docker-compose build
docker-compose up -d

This will (after some time) start the EEA Corpus application server on localhost:8181

EEA Corpus Data

The latest EEA Corpus dataset can be produced by visiting global catalogue > See all results > download csv.

Once the csv file is downloaded, you can pass it to this application to be analysed. Make sure your first column is the “document text” to be analysed. The other columns are considered metadata.

You may download an already generated large EEA corpus data for testing like this:

curl -L -o data.csv
