Hidden Histories: Digitally Processing, Analyzing, and Visualizing Large Archives in Omeka

Development of plugins for the Omeka platform to enable large-scale text processing and data visualizations for digitized collections, using the Mayor Ivan Allen Digital Archive as one test case.

We are applying for an NEH grant to produce an Omeka plugin suite that leverages new visual and digital methodologies, enabling researchers and archivists to explore sizeable digital archives with minimal technical barriers. The resulting tool will allow users to produce key metadata and explore these archives by connecting the important entities they contain semantically and visually. It processes the entirety of a collection, so that queries return a more intuitive collection of significant entities within the collection, allowing users to navigate visually and semantically from an initial point of interest to all connected points in the archive. We have already produced a working prototype of the system, which Georgia Tech scholars are currently using for research. Primarily, the grant will provide us with time and resources to lead a team of Georgia Tech student researchers in the development of the platform.
