Leaflet Mapping the Republic of Letters TimeMapper Can I make a timemap anonymously? Yes! You do not need an account to create a timemap - they can be created anonymously and will have all the same features and shareability of normal timemaps. However, there are some benefits of creating an account and creating your timemap whilst logged in: You'll get a nice URL for your timemap at /your-username/a-name-you-choose-for-your-timemap All of your timemaps will be nicely listed at /your-username As you'll be identified as the owner you'll be able to re-configure (or delete) your timemap later If you do want an account, signup is very easy – it takes just 15 seconds, is very secure, and uses your Twitter account (no need to think up a new username and password!). "Publish" 1. Go to File Menu in your spreadsheet, then 'Publish to the Web', then click 'Start Publishing'. What URL do I use to connect my spreadsheet?

Dans la vie, il n'y a pas de solutions. Abstract: This article analyses the transformation of the familiar, linear scientific information chain into an interactive scientific communication network in response to concomitant changes in scientific research and education. 1. It is generally understood that we are at present experiencing a transformation in the familiar scientific information chain, i.e. from author to publisher to library to reader. In this article we will analyse this transformation. However, we should not stop at this point. We will analyse the thesis that the transformation is of a structural nature. 2. 2.1 General 3.

Visualization as a Digital Humanities ________ Presentation given on Saturday, April 27, 2013, at HASTAC 2013 in Toronto, Canada. [Download on Slideshare] You will notice I have changed the title of my presentation a bit from what is in the program. Partially, it’s because I’m an indecisive academic, but mostly, it is in reaction to my experience of co-hosting a HASTAC forum on “Visualization Across Disciplines” this past week. As a new media scholar with one foot in visualization and the other in the digital humanities, I often find myself asking myself this: “What exactly is visualization in the digital humanities?” We’ve already established and can agree upon why we use it. But what I’m more interested in and what we never really talk about is the how. First, let me clarify what I mean by visualization. We could certainly come up with others; but what I want to note are two important points: 1) the visualizations I’m talking about are digital, and 2) they help us to “make sense” of data. This is not a new idea. Opinions?

Basics of Mapping for the Digital Humanities – IDRE Sandbox To start, navigate to this page via the URL below: “What is a map? In the Humanities, mapping can be defined in so many different ways, there is no easy answer to these questions. “Everything is related to everything else, but near things are more related than distant things.” Waldo Tobler’s statement defines his first law of geography, in ways stating the obvious correlation between objects in space, paving the foundation behind spatial dependencies. As mentioned at the top of the syllabus for this course, space and time are dimensions that are forever intertwined due to their ontological nature. Minard The representation of 3 dimensional space onto a flat, 2 dimensional platform–a map–brings with it many challenges and compromises (e.g. projection systems). Hans Hypercities I turn off Google Maps and start to drive. Google Earth The LA Times uses the SIMILE timeline to effectively show crime over time. CartoDB

Getting into Academia | University of Leeds Careers Centre Blog Are you considering an academic career? It can be difficult to know where to start, so in this blog post our Careers Consultant, Becky Clark, gives her top tips on how to be successful in academia. Whether you are at undergraduate, Masters or doctoral (see definition below)* level you may be considering an academic career. If you are passionate about your subject, like, and are good at, research, love being within a university and want to share your knowledge with university students then an academic career may be for you. Some academics focus primarily on teaching, some focus solely on research. Many roles combine both. You will need a good first degree with a 2:1 or 1st, usually a Masters and then a doctoral level qualification – a PhD, EngD, DPhil, DBA etc. If you are a research student already (doing a doctorate) these are the other things to be doing to increase your chances of progressing in academia.

46 museos y bibliotecas que han digitalizado todo su conocimiento y lo ofrecen gratis en internet Gran parte de la historia de la humanidad y de los conocimientos que hemos adquirido con el paso de los siglos, se encuentran contenidos en una infinidad de objetos, como libros, escritos y muchos otros artículos que nos proporcionan una mirada al pasado, con los que podemos entender de dónde venimos y cómo hemos evolucionado como especie. Debido a la importancia de esto, el ser humano ha tratado de almacenar y cuidar todo este acervo, ya sea en museos, bibliotecas, universidades e incluso a través de colecciones privadas, que a pesar de estar ante cuidados especiales, el paso del tiempo les provoca un deterioro irreversible que pone en riesgo todo este conocimiento humano. Por lo anterior, desde hace algunos años surgieron iniciativas que se apoyan en el uso de la tecnología, esto para digitalizar todo este contenido y ponerlo al alcance de cualquier personas con acceso a internet, iniciativas que ahora son conocidas como 'Colecciones Digitales'.
