ContextMiner is a framework to collect, analyze, and present the contextual information along with the data. It is based on an idea that while describing or archiving an object, contextual information helps to make sense of that object or to preserve it better. ContextMiner provides tools to collect data, metadata, and contextual information off the Web by automated crawls. At present, ContextMiner supports automated crawls from blogs, YouTube, Flickr, and Twitter. It is available for free usage as both a Web-based tool and a downloadable software. ContextMiner won the Best Political Science Software award from American Political Science Association.
