Text Card Mod for Spotfire® 1.2.0 (Spotfire 11.0+)

1 Screenshot


Visualize long texts easily.



The text card mod makes it easy to visualize long texts in Spotfire. It is particularly useful when viewing texts that have varying lengths such as human written comments or log entries.


This mod was made possible by a great team of 3rd year students of the Bachelor?s program Software Engineering and Management at Gothenburg University (Course DIT827). Thanks to the project owners: Alexander Strand, Emanuel Dellsen, Hartmut Fischer, Jonatan Vaara and Karl Westgårdh.

Data Requirement

To make the text card mod work properly, the underlying data must be formatted in a certain way. The data must exist in a single table with at least one column containing the content (text) to display. Additional columns can also be used to provide more context to the text cards, sort cards, and color cards.


For detailed information on data requirements, the available settings, and an example of how to set up the visualization, read the mod's community article.
