Maps. They’ve been around longer than photographs. They’ve defined empires,guided explorers, told stories, and captured the imagination of many a hopeful traveler for years. While most appreciate the beauty and power of a good map, few recognize the dynamic and vital applications they have today.

Intriguing Networks's insight:
With the established ability re big data and analytics and here even with machine learning and a trend towards 'as a service infrastructure' is there a DH opportunity? Are there standards and shared infrastructures that would enable more innovation and pure research? All for original research but if we do not want to reinvent the wheel and learn from, leverage and deploy the best tools can a more strategic approach be adopted to save money as well or at least let it achieve more? Europeana, Jisc, projects out of Edina re Georeferencing etc has informed and enabled for instance British Library crowd sourced map projects but is it all too piecemeal? where can DH and OpenGLAm come together more, as an example. And finally using TEI and Machine Learning what projects have been achieved and again how can these core capabilities be better shared ?

Starting with 6000 manuscripts already in progress the plan is now to make all the 80,000 manuscripts accessible to mankind. what a fascinating read they will make, assuming there will be full disclosure, what really happened when the Vatican and the Papacy virtually ruled the world?
what a resource and what a #digitalhumanities feast this will be. But hope that some european GLAMS and DM2 initiatives will be involved?

A fantastic new visualisation work has been released today titled ‘Kindred Britain‘. Created by Nicholas Jenkins and Elijah Meeks of Stanford University in partnership with Scott Murray (amongst others) the project offers a deep, exploratory interface into a network of nearly 30,000 key figures in British culture connected through ‘family relationships of blood, marriage, or affiliation’.
