Formal Concept Analysis Research Toolbox (FCART) is an integrated environment for knowledge and data engineers with a set of research tools based on Formal Concept Analysis. FCART allows a user to load structured and unstructured data (including texts with various metadata) from heterogeneous data sources into local data storage, compose scaling queries for data snapshots, and then research classical and some innovative FCA artifacts in analytic sessions.
