The Argument Web Application Library is a growing collection of tools and applications for creating, manipulating, extending, navigating and visualising Argument Web resources -- the debates, arguments, opinions, claims, rebuttals and so on that make up the interconnected network of the Argument Web.


AIFdb. The primary search interface for Argument Web resources. AIFdb provides textual and graphical presentation of arguments and debates, supports import and export to a variety of formats, and connects to execution engines such as TOAST.
Araucaria. First released in 2001, Araucaria (now at version 3.1) remains the only argument analysis tool to support Toulmin, Wigmore and 'standard' analysis styles, as well as providing explicit support for argumentation schemes. Native Araucaria AML files can be uploaded to the Argument Web via the import service. Existing Argument Web resources can be exported to AML through the AIFdb interface.
 
Argublogging. A bookmarklet widget for constructing arguments and debates across blogs.
Arvina. A prototype tool for running dialogues over sets of Argument Web resources, allowing existing debates to be re-enacted, or new debates to be created on the fly using, navigating and extending existing arguments.
 
Carneades. An argument mapping and evaluation tool aimed primarily at analysis of legal cases. Native Carneades LKIF files can be uploaded to the Argument Web via the import service. Existing Argument Web resources can be exported to LKIF through the AIFdb interface.
 OVA. A new, native AIF2 analysis tool from the Online Visualisation of Argument suite.
 
Rationale. Decision-making support tool, focusing on the construction of reasoned arguments. Native Rationale RTNL files can be uploaded to the Argument Web via the import service. Existing Argument Web resources can be exported to RTNL through the AIFdb interface.
