Using Neatline w/Omeka or other Open-Source Geospatial/Temporal Tools?

Let’s meet up, demo our projects, and share secrets.  Ultimately we are interested in providing baseline workflows and best practices for geospatial discovery layers for our core digital library collections that can be adapted and customized for digital research projects.  I’d like to know how other libraries are handling mapping with Neatline or other open-source tools.

For more context, see a recent Digital Humanities Questions & Answers session:

    At Haverford, we’re using Neatline as a stand-alone, non mapping application for now, more similar to the way that David McClure used it for text here but I have my eye on it for a much larger geospatial project in the future. I’d love to talk through both workflows and best practices as we develop both the Digital Humanities uses of Neatline and a basic campus geospatial infrastructure simultaneously.

  2. I have played around with it with historic photos and historic maps. Want to see what others are doing.

  3. I’d like to learn more about Neatline to see how I can integrate it into visualizations of times/places within digital editions.
