Analyzing large volumes of text? Pattern based auto coding is a feature designed to speed up the coding process for large volumes of textual data. It allows you to do approximate “broad-brush” coding of large volumes of text quickly which you can then review and refine.
For example if you have 100 interviews you may manually code the first 10 then have NVivo auto code the remaining interviews based on the patterns found in your initial coding.
