The Scholars’ Lab is proud to announce the launch of Neatline, our set of Omeka plugins for hand-crafted geo-temporal visualization and interpretation. (Therefore, this blog will be closing soon. Head on over to http://neatline.org/ to download our plugins, see sample exhibits or play in the sandbox, and read all about the project, including news and history.)
Welcome to Neatline!
Neatline is a project of the University of Virginia Library Scholars' Lab, and has been funded through the generous support of the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Institute of Museum and Library Services, and the Library of Congress. Software development is now feature-complete, and we'll launch the project on July 2nd, 2012.
Neatline allows scholars to combine timelines, maps, and scholarly narratives to explore literary and historical materials in new and exciting ways. A suite of plugins for the Omeka framework, Neatline facilitates the creation of spatial and temporal views of cultural materials.
We offer it as a contribution to interpretive humanities scholarship in the visual vernacular.
