One of the many fun things we do in the Scholars’ Lab is help people find geographic datasets. Folks use geographic datasets to make maps and for spatial analysis using geographic information systems software. Finding detailed local-scale datasets can be hard. And finding local-scale geographic datasets for areas outside the United States is even harder,…. More.
In my last post (Geocoding for Neatline – Part I), I covered how to programmatically geocode a set of addresses and generate a CSV file for use in Neatline. In this post, I’ll go over how to actually post this information in Omeka and make it available for use in your Neatline exhibit. Requirements As…. More.
[Cross-posted with dclure.org and neatline.org] This is part 3 of a 3-post tutorial that walks through process of georeferencing a historical map and using it in GeoServer and Neatline. In part 1 of this series, we used ArcMap to convert a static image into a georeferenced .tiff file. In part 2, we post-processed the file…. More.

Although I still can’t find way to make Geoserver do it automatically, I did find this…. More.
[Cross-posted from dclure.org and neatline.org] Out of the box, Neatline (our recently-released framework for building geotemporal exhibits) can be used to create geo-temporal exhibits based on “modern-geography” base-layers – OpenStreetMap, Google satellite and street maps, and a collection of beautiful, stylized layers from Stamen Design. For historical and literary projects, though, one of Neatline’s most…. More.
