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.
Usage: MATCreateComparisonDocument [options] task_name output_doc pivot_doc otherdoc...
task_name: the name of a known task. Known tasks are: ...
output_doc: the file to save the comparison document to.
pivot_doc: the document to which each of the other documents will be compared.
otherdoc...: a sequence of other documents, 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.
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.
