Stemmaweb is an online application that integrates various tools and methods for creating, analysing, and interpreting stemmata and variant texts. An upload facility supports the uploading of tradition information (aligned witnesses) in various formats (spreadsheet, CSV, TEI-XML, GraphML). Hypothetical stemmata may be added through dot format files, a format for describing graphs. Stemmaweb offers generation of stemmata via Stemweb. A 'stexaminer' allows the visualisation of variants within a text tradition, according to the selected stemma hypothesis. The integrated 'relationship mapper' functionality allows to describe and classify various relationships between variants in different witnesses.
