Installing Infomap on Ubuntu

Infomap is an NLP software from Stanford which simulates a variant of a Latent Semantic Analysis, with term-term matrices (instead of term-document matrices) and singular value decomposition. In a nutshell it is a C program which is readymade for you to build semantic vector spaces and compute similarities between words or concepts.

To install it on Ubuntu, make sure you follow these steps:

  1. Install g++ (sudo apt-get install g++)
  2. Install gdmb (with dbm-compatible modules – refer to the README/ INSTALL file)
  3. Install Infomap

Hope that works!
