Thus far our efforts have served to produce two working demonstrations using mapping technology to navigate historical data or literature:
- "Plague Year," which provides a timeline-based navigation tool to step through events recorded from Defoe's A Journal of the Plague Year.
- Melville in Rome, which enables the exploration of possible routes taken by Melville in between events recorded in his journal of his time spent there.
The project uses widely-embraced and familiar technologies and we encourage others to fork this codebase and render their own maps using their own data.
We invite and encourage your feedback to make Itinerary better! Please use GitHub Issues to provide feedback.
As Itinerary evolves, our goal is to enable collaborative and crowdsourcing features so that scholarly communities can share insight and help refine mapped data.
