"Mapping the Republic of Letters” is a collaborative, interdisciplinary, and international project in the digital humanities, centered at Stanford University. Since 2008, we have been creating visualizations to analyze “big data” relating to the world of early-modern scholars. We focus primarily on their correspondence, travel, and social networks. While we make use of quantitative metrics to examine the scope and dimensions of our data, we remain committed to the qualitative methodologies of the humanities. We actively encourage collaborations with other projects. <p style="text-align:right;color:#A8A8A8"></p>
Imagine the data you'd get from recording the original Captain's logs from every Royal Naval vessel from the First World War: location, temperature and time providing a unique record of climate change. The excellent Old Weather has been crowdsourcing every one of those log books - and the result, created by Simon Tokumine using CartoDB , is a fascinating insight into the British Empire at war - albeit of the records which have survived.
