Social GeoAnnotation with Recogito 2 and the Pelagios Commons

Presenter:   Dr. Leif Isaksen   Senior Lecturer in Spatial History, Lancaster University, UK

Watch the video of this seminar on Youtube (1hr 14min).

Pelagios Commons is a community of historians, classicists, archaeologists heritage professionals and computer scientists dedicated to linking together online geodata about the past. One of its chief contributions to the field is Recogito, an open software platform that allows user to identify and annotate place references in texts, images and tables. The data produced can be used for a variety of purposes including mapping, content analysis and information retrieval across independent and heterogenous datasets.

This presentation will discuss the latest developments within the Pelagios Commons community and introduce a number of new features in Recogito 2 which include support for collaborative annotating of documents, XML export and an entirely new workflow designed to make it even easier for anyone to produce Linked Open Geodata.
