You can see an example at <a href="http://heuristscholar.org/cocoon/anmm/item/1225/" rel="nofollow">http://heuristscholar.org/cocoon/anmm/item/1225/</a> (log in with guest+guest). On the right you have the resources linked to that particular section, including previous and next sections, images and the voyage as a whole (which itself is linked back to all the sections in voyage order). The underlying database is a collaborative web-based object database built on MySQL/PHP. </p> <p>The pages are built from Heurist records and relationships which generate XML which is processed with XSLT and Cocoon. This is rather an old experimental version of our Relationship Browser view - some of it is broken and the map/timeline layout is poor. This capability is now embedded directly in the Heurist front-end (Vsn 3, due out early next year). </p> <p>For a more finished system which uses the same XML/XSLT/Cocoon relationship browser technology see <a href="http://www.dictionaryofsydney.org/place/hyde_park_barracks" rel="nofollow">http://www.dictionaryofsydney.org/place/hyde_park_barracks</a> - the navigation, map, timeline, images etc. are generated in the same way from Heurist relationships. </p> Kelly Johnston on "How can I plot multiple sea journeys onto a digital map?" http://digitalhumanities.org/answers/topic/how-can-i-plot-multiple-sea-journeys-onto-a-digital-map#post-607 Wed, 27 Oct 2010 13:15:08 +0000 Kelly Johnston 607@http://digitalhumanities.org/answers/ <p>Hi Tim,</p> <p>Check the examples and tutorials at <a HREF="http://www.googlelittrips.org/">Google Lit Trips</a> to see how others have used Google Earth to document travel, both on land and sea. You can embed as much information as you want on individuals involved in the journey, dates, ship info, and such in the KML so it's available interactively to your user when they click icons on the map. And it's easy to share your work with others through KML/KMZ files. If this looks appealing, download one of the .kml files from the site and use it as a model for your project. </p> <p>And here's a fun read on how to document an ocean voyage, now in progress: <a HREF="http://www.tahinaexpedition.com/">Tahina Expedition</a></p> <p>Kelly </p> Bill Ferster on "How can I plot multiple sea journeys onto a digital map?" http://digitalhumanities.org/answers/topic/how-can-i-plot-multiple-sea-journeys-onto-a-digital-map#post-605 Wed, 27 Oct 2010 12:57:49 +0000 Bill Ferster 605@http://digitalhumanities.org/answers/ <p>The folks over at the Hagley Museum (Dupont) used VisualEyes to track early 19th century sales of gunpowder:</p> <p><a href="http://www.hagley.org/library/exhibits/brandywine/nationalsales.html" rel="nofollow">http://www.hagley.org/library/exhibits/brandywine/nationalsales.html</a></p> <p>and</p> <p><a href="http://www.hagley.org/library/exhibits/brandywine/saleslocal.html" rel="nofollow">http://www.hagley.org/library/exhibits/brandywine/saleslocal.html</a></p> <p>I think they tracked over 8,000 individual sales from archive records. </p> KaCeBe on "How can I plot multiple sea journeys onto a digital map?" http://digitalhumanities.org/answers/topic/how-can-i-plot-multiple-sea-journeys-onto-a-digital-map#post-603 Wed, 27 Oct 2010 12:09:25 +0000 KaCeBe 603@http://digitalhumanities.org/answers/ <p>If you seek for a web-based solution, the recently published "Map Scripting 101", "an Example-Driven Guide to Building Interactive Maps with Bing, Yahoo!, and Google Maps<br /> by Adam DuVander (<a href="http://nostarch.com/mapscripting.htm" rel="nofollow">http://nostarch.com/mapscripting.htm</a>) might be a starting point.<br /> A desktop-solution would be using Google Earth or NASA World Wind.<br /> KML would probably the "language" to use, as it is an open standard and can also serve as a datasource.

Most journeys begin in eastern Australia, but the destinations are global.</p> <p>I've had a brief play around with Google Maps which might suit the purpose, but doesn't seem ideal for working with sea journeys or the amount of data I plan to input for each voyage. </p> <p>Is anyone aware of any software which might be a better fit?</p> <p>Thanks for your help, and apologies for my ignorance.</p> <p>Tim </p>
