CAT and Dedoose were listed already, but because they are both web based applications they get their own page as well. CAT is free to use, whereas Dedoose charges a fee to use.
Coding Analysis Toolkit (CAT)
CAT was designed to utilize keystrokes rather than the mouse as a coding assistant. CAT can import an ATLAS.ti project to parse quantitatively, though it has a coding mechanism built into itself as well. CAT won the Best Research Software award from the Information Technology & Politics in the American Political Science Association in 2008. CAT is Web based.
