Linked Geo-Data and Early Geospatial Documents

  1. 1. PELAGIOS Linked Geo-Data & Early Geospatial Documents Rainer Simon, Austrian Institute of Technology Elton Barker, The Open University http://pelagios-project.blogspot.co.uk @pelagiosproject Historical GIS Workshop | 15. 11. 2013, Berlin
  2. 2. Pelagios | Linking Data, Openly Inscriptions Texts Museum Objects Connecting Ancient World Research Resources through the Places they refer to Archaeological Sites …or any other online resource that bears a relation to a particular ancient place! Archaeological Finds 2
  3. 3. One Ring to Rule them All | Non-Goals  Data aggregation  Federated search  Standardization of data representation  Schema alignment & interoperability on a metadata level Connectivity through common references rather than a common schema! 6
  4. 4. 7
  5. 5. How? | Don’t Unify the Model – Annotate! 8
  6. 6. Pleiades Pelagios Ancient World Resources 9
  7. 7. 10
  8. 8. Data | Annotations as Standoff Markup  Publish-able as dump files (no triple store required)  De-coupled from your data infrastructure – no impact on schemas, conceptual models, technology  Pelagios data license is independent from the data itself – only annotations need to be CC 11
  9. 9. Pelagios 3 | (Partly) Future Work Early Geospatial Documents  Andrew W. Mellon Foundation Funding  September 2013 – August 2015  Pelagios Approach extended to maps and geographic texts up to 1492  Latin, Greek & Byzantine, European Medieval, European Maritime, Islamic, Chinese 12
  10. 10. Pelagios 3 | Technology Topics  Aligning Gazetteers Linking based on “connectivity through common references” Using GeoNames and Wikidata as shared reference system  Automating Annotation Geo-Parsing (Text -> Toponyms) Geo-Resolution (Toponyms -> Gazetteer IDs) Image processing to identify toponyms on maps scans Workflows & tools for expert correction  Visualizing Pelagios Data Visualizing the “Pelagios Network” Publishing annotated materials (where possible)
  11. 11. Pelagios 3 | Open Source  Pelagios uses Open Source – e.g. Stanford NLP Toolkit and Edina Unlock Geoparser Lucene index engine Neo4j graph database OpenCV computer vision library Leaflet, D3 et al.  Pelagios develops Open Source – e.g. Scalagios Pelagios Data Toolbelt API & Visualization Workbench http://github.com/pelagios
  12. 12. Development | Pelagios Data Toolbelt
  13. 13. Development | Online Data Visualization
  14. 14. Development | Toponym Detection
  15. 15. Development | Annotorious 10.12.2009 18
  16. 16. Development | Map Annotation
  17. 17. Pre-Pelagios 3 Tools | Graph Explorer Demo Exploring Relations between Places through Data Exploring Relations between Data through Place 20
