MAT 2.0 introduces comparison documents, which contain multiple
sets of annotations against the same signal, together with
pairings and similarity judgments. These pairings are created by
the same algorithm that
underlies MATScore. These pairings
can be visualized, and (ultimately) reconciled, in the MAT UI, and
these comparison documents are created by the MAT server in
response to comparison requests from the UI. The standalone viewer has no
corresponding ability to create these documents on demand; this
tool is provided for those who wish to create comparison documents
for viewing in the standalone tool.
You can use this tool to create a comparison document, which can
later be converted to a reconciliation document in the MAT UI, or
you can create a reconciliation document directly, depending on
what your goals are.
Usage: MATCreateComparisonDocument [options] task_name output pivot other...
task_name: the name of a known task. Known tasks are: ...
output: the file (or directory, if pivot is a directory) to save the comparison document to.
pivot: the document (or directory of documents) to which each of the other documents will be compared.
other...: a sequence of other documents (or directories, if pivot is a directory,
which all share the same signal with the pivot_doc.
||The file type of the input document(s). One of the readers. Default is mat-json.|
||If provided, the name of a similarity profile
in the specified task.
||If provided, the document will be created for
reconciliation rather than comparison.
||If provided, the label to use for the
document label of the pivot.
||If provided, a comma-separated sequence of labels to use for each of the other documents or directories.|
Let's say you've annotated a document ne.json using the "Named
Entity" task, and you have another annotator's annotations as
well, in the file ne_other.json and you want to create a
comparison document for use in the standalone viewer, and you want
to treat your document as the reference (pivot) document.
