Netgraph is a client-server application for searching in linguistically annotated treebanks, developed primarily for searching in the Prague Dependency Treebank 2.0. Nevertheless, Netgraph can work with other corpora too, as long as they are converted to FS format.
Netgraph consists of two parts - the client and the server. The client is a multi-platform program (written in Java2) and can run either as an applet in a Java2 (1.5 or higher) enabled web browser or as a stand-alone Java2 application. The server is written in C. The server is placed at the same internet node as the treebank and after a connection with a client is established, it searches the corpus given a query.
To connect to the public Netgraph server, only the Netgraph client (and an internet connection) is required. Please read the installation instructions for the client, and optionally for the server as well. For a quick start, you may want to read a quick tutorial and watch a flash demonstration of the Netgraph client.
After the installation, to connect to the Netgraph public server, start the Netgraph client and fill in the following connection and login information:
- server: quest.ms.mff.cuni.cz
- port: 2100 for the analytical trees, 2200 for the tectogrammatical trees
- user (login name): anonymous
- password: anonymous
To connect to a locally installed server, fill-in the server localhost and the port 2000. The local server must be started before a connection to it is attempted.
