Neatline - creates exhibits that target scholarly and public humanities audiences

The update and further enhancement of the Neatline tool that allows users of the Omeka content management system to develop geotemporal representations of online collections.

This proposal requests funding for the continued development of Neatline, a plugin for the popular Omeka content management system. Neatline empowers scholars, students, librarians, archivists, cultural heritage professionals, and public humanities enthusiasts to create engaging, sophisticated, and visually compelling geotemporal interpretations of online collections. This proposal focuses its efforts on improving the sustainability of the Neatline codebase, working with the next version of Omeka currently being developed, upgrading the underlying mapping technologies to work better with mobile devices, improving the exhibit editing interface based on community feedback, creating a modern timeline interface based on the work of the Temporal Modelling project, improving the user, developer, and system administrator communities and documentation, as well as creating a compelling interface for integrating long-form scholarly narrative and/or primary textual sources.

Neatline: Facilitating Geospatial and Temporal Interpretation of Archival Collections

Creation of an open source tool that integrates timelines and maps to literary and historical materials in archival collections to strengthen the visualization of research.

UVA Library seeks Level II Start-Up funding for the development of Neatline, a tool for the creation of interlinked timelines and maps as interpretive expressions of the literary or historical content of archival collections. Neatline promotes collaboration by libraries and cultural heritage institutions with scholarly end-users, who will build on standard EAD (Encoded Archival Description) metadata to produce geospatial and temporal visualizations of the textual content of cataloged letters and manuscripts. Neatline is a geo-temporal framework for fruitful interchange among scholars and the stewards of primary resources. It builds on robust, open standards and tools, including OpenLayers and SIMILE Timeline. The innovation of our approach lies in our dedication to providing a seamless, out-of-the-box experience for users without deep Web development skills. Neatline is a contribution to interpretive humanities scholarship in the visual vernacular.
