Berkeley Prosopography Services: Implementing the Tool-kit

The enhancement of the Berkeley Prosopography Services platform and toolkit to extend its capabilities for social network analysis and improve its user interface for scholars.

The project is designed to extend the functionality of Berkeley Prosopography Services (BPS), an interactive tool-kit for analyzing and visualizing datasets, and to expand its accessibility and utility to researchers working with data across diverse disciplines. BPS streamlines prosopography and social network analysis (SNA) by offering an integrated and customizable out-of-the-box digital analysis tool-kit and work environment that facilitate the dynamic recovery and exploration of the connections between individuals and activities in all areas and ages of human endeavor. The tool-kit includes: (1) a corpus input and management tool, (2) a probabilistic disambiguator, (3) support for assertions, (4) an SNA engine, (5) a visualization module, and (6) workspace support. The implementation phase of BPS will build on its existing software base, its sound conceptual and architectural structure and will focus on these areas of technical development and increased user functionality.
