Tool for assisted geocoding of historical datasets (something between a manual table editing and automated geocoding script)

Historical Geocoding Assistant Logo

Description

At this moment, there are several other tools and methods that could help to geocode a historical dataset. But none of them was sufficient for our projects so we came with the idea of creating an own one. Advantages of our concept are:

  • integration with a live google drive spreadsheet table
  • possibility to switch between coded locations within map or within a select box
  • integration of search systems - geonames, wikipedia, google maps...
  • implementation of spatial uncertainty levels
  • a possibility to set a spatial extent relevant for a project
  • overlay layers support (modern countries, regions...)
  • multiple base layers support (satellite, osm, historical base layers...)
  • ...

Technologies

A client side web application, built with javascript (webpack, leaflet...) that could access and edit a google drive spreadsheet table.

Dataset table

It is needed to be signed into google drive and type the id of the table at the begginning. The table should consist of a column for name, place name, x and y coordinates and a column that specifies the uncertainty level. Please, see the manual
