Civil War Sound- Group Update

This past week the group has been finalizing three important aspects of the overall project. First, the script is being tailored in such a way that we can record and attach metadata information such as author and bibliographic information to our concordances. There are two ways to accomplish this. One way involves running each of the 175 sources we have individually up against the Sound Corpus, therefore we know where the concordances belong. The second is to tweak the scrip itself to attach those pieces of metadata to the concordances themselves.

We have also been working on getting the map transferred onto ARCGIS Online. This has take some troubleshooting but we are nearing completion of this aspect of the project.

We are also beginning to get together the various “extras” that will explain the map and the work and the methodology we have accomplished so far.
