Send us a Suggestion

The MoEML Agas map now has a new feature that gives users a more accessible and direct way of submitting corrections. We added a button (✉) at the end of the Agas map menu bar (top far right). Upon clicking, the button launches your e-mail client application in a new window, with a template that will send to; it provides you with a list of information that you need to fill out, as well as necessary guidelines. You will be asked to specify the following:
  1. Type of recommendation: Addition/Correction/Movement/Adjustment
  2. Suggested Name
  3. XML:id
  4. Certainty
  5. Sources
  6. XML Code: The code from the red box (as explained on theuser agas locations documentation page).
  7. More information: Any necessary information or comments that can be helpful in the decision making process of whether to approve or decline the claim.
  8. Credit
  9. Follow-up
Once you fill out the needed information and send the e-mail, the responsible person—at this time Janelle Jenstad, project director—will investigate your suggestion, and implement the changes as appropriate.

E-mail Template

If the e-mail pop-up is not working or you would rather write to us directly from your browser or e-mail client, please address your e-mail to Copy the below template into your e-mail, then answer the questions and provide information as necessary.
Thanks for helping us improve MoEML’s edition of the Agas Map! Please fill in as much of the information below as you can. When you click send on this email, your information will go directly to Project Director Janelle Jenstad for follow-up.
  1. What type of change are you proposing? Common changes include
    1. adding to the Placeography and to the Agas Map a location that MoEML has not yet included in its Placeography;
    2. mapping a location that is listed in the MoEML Placeography but has not yet been mapped on the Agas Map;
    3. moving a point, line, or shape on the Agas Map;
    4. adjusting a shape to better capture the footprint of the location on the Agas Map.
  2. AUTHORITY NAME: If you are recommending that we add a new location (a), what do you recommend that we use as the authority name for the location? I.e., what name do scholars use in secondary historical criticism? If there’s no criticism, what do you think the authority name ought to be? Note that we generally take as our authority name the name most commonly used by early modern Londoners in 1600. We modernize the spelling according to standard editorial practice.
  3. XML:ID: If you are recommended that we map or correct the map placement for a location already in the MoEML Placeography (b, c, or d), what is the XML:ID of the location? The XML:ID is an alphanumeric string consisting normally of four uppercase letters and a number. You’ll find this XML:ID in the URL of the location. For example, the XML:ID of St. Bride’s church is STBR1 and the URL for the location is In most browsers, the URL will show up somewhere on your screen when you hover over the name of the location.
  4. CERTAINTY: If you are recommending that we add map coordinates for an existing or new MoEML location (a or b), please tell us how certain you are about the placement of the location on the map. Options are: high, medium, or low.
  5. SOURCES: Please indicate the source(s) of your knowledge, especially if we should be giving credit to the source(s).
  6. XML Code: Please draw the location on the Agas Map using the built-in drawing tools and paste the code from the red box into this email. See Add MoEML Locations to the Agas Map for instructions on how to draw on the map.
  7. MORE INFORMATION: Please provide any necessary information or comments to help us assess and implement your suggestion.
  8. CREDIT: Would you like to be credited for your contribution to the map? If yes, please give your name and a brief bio-bibliographical note.
  9. FOLLOW-UP: May the Project Director follow up with you? Please give your email address if you would like follow-up at an email address other than the one from which you are sending this message?
