    It’s kind of late to bring up another platform for sharing online collections – but I just looked at the metro website and they have a workshop on View Share you can use it to make maps, and graphs with your data as well :

    “Viewshare is a free, Library-of-Congress-sponsored platform that empowers historians, librarians, archivists and curators to create and customize dynamic interfaces to collections of digital content. Starting from an example spreadsheet or data harvested via OAI-PMH, you will use Viewshare to generate distinct interactive visual interfaces (including maps, timelines, and sophisticated faceted navigation), which you can copy-paste to embed in any webpage. This workshop does not require any particular technical proficiency.”

    Here is a link to the View Share site:

      We may still be able to incorporate Viewshare into our Omeka recommendation. I found an article from centerNet, an international network of digital humanities centers, that explores how the two complement one another and add functionality. Here’s an excerpt, followed by the link to the original article:

      “By incorporating a Viewshare view of the collection into the site I gain the following functionality. First off, I can provide a range of visualizations that would require third party tools or plugins to work in Omeka. In this case, a map, charts, a timeline and an image gallery. Beyond simply offering these views, the tool also lets any user use each of the widgets on the left side of the view to facet through the displayed collection in each view. Most importantly, I can use the related data facets to see all items between a given data range, a feature that is impossible in Omeka because it treats data information as text and not as numerical information. This all means that in each of the individual displays I can browse the items in the collection according to any of the parameters in the widgets. Collectively, this the Viewshare view becomes a potent way to visually explore trends and patterns in the collection. As one final benifit, by building my site this way I have duplicated my collection metadata. It now exists both in my Omeka database on the Viewshare site.”

    Hi – I know we are done with digital humanities – but I saw this link on the Adobe education email. It is a video from Stanford University and how they use digital humanities, data visualization, and data driven statistical infographics.
