Map of London: Project News
5 May 2013: Kim McLean-Fiander (MoEML Research Fellow) and Janelle Jenstad (Project Director) are very pleased with the team we’ve hired for Summer 2013. Cameron Butt continues on as Chief Encoder until the end of July. He’ll be training Tye Landels as his long-term replacement. Nathan Phillips becomes our senior Graduate Research Assistant, continuing his work on John Stow’s A Survey of London and training Patrick Close in the dark arts of encoding antiquarian texts. Zaqir Virani and Quinn MacDonald will work on the mayoral pageants and other library texts, as well as managing our social media. Zaqir will also be working with the HCMC’s Greg Newton to move our map platform into OpenLayers. Telka Duxbury will be uploading the digital images of our 1633 The Survey of London into our database and adding the metadata for each page. Sarah Milligan, who just finished the last page of her part of Stow (congrats!), will be undertaking some rare book research for us at the Folger Shakespeare Library in July. Welcome (back) everyone! We’re excited about working with you in the next phase of MoEML’s development.

We’ll be able to hire a post-doc and a number of graduate and undergraduate research assistants, who will work to complete a new edition of the map, a complete edition of Stow’s Survey of London, a geo-edition of the mayoral shows, a rich library of literary texts, and many more encyclopedia pages. Janelle Jenstad is the Principal Investigator. Martin Holmes and Stewart Arneil of the HCMC are Co-Applicants on the grant. We are making our proposal "Summary" and "Expected Outcomes" publicly available here.
13 May 2011: Back by popular demand! We’ve re-activated all the links to the experimental google-style zoom-able layered map, which offers much better resolution than the grid map. We are slowly importing the data from the grid map to the layered map. Please check all site identifications on the grid map.
