tool: GeoNames

A global geographical database that may be used to identify, tag and disambiguate all references to location. The database contains over 8 million entries, each of which possesses a geographic name (in various languages), latitude, longitude, elevation, population, administrative subdivision and postal codes and information on unique features.

tool: GeoParser

GeoParser is a text analysis tool that may be used to identify, tag and (where appropriate) disambiguate references to geographic location in a text resource. The tool uses Natural Language Processing to analyse the composition of a resource and identifying words that match its geographic database. The approach is useful for processing ambiguous references, such as names that may have one of several locations (e.g. Belfast in Ireland, New Zealand and Canada) and distinguishing names that may be confused with other action (e.g. Reading in Berkshire and reading as an activity). GeoParser may be used with GeoCrossWalk to tag a place name with full geographical coordinates (e.g. an OS National Grid Reference).

project: Anglo-Saxon Language of Landscape (LangScape)

The aim of the LangScape Project is to make accessible over the web a rich body of material relating to the English countryside of a thousand years ago and more, using estate boundaries - detailed descriptions by those who lived in and worked the Anglo-Saxon landscape. The completed website - an electronic corpus of Anglo-saxon boundary clauses with extensive XML mark-up - will be a powerful research tool with applications within a broad range of academic disciplines. It will also be designed with a view to its ongoing development for public and schools use. [read more]

project: Virtual Reconstruction of Palladio’s Teatro Olimpico

The Teatro Olimpico at Vicenza, Italy - still existent and well preserved - was built in 1580-85 for the local Accademia Olimpica (founded in 1556) on a plot provided by the city council. It was the first permanent theatre to be built in Europe since antiquity. The stage, which resembles a façade of a Renaissance palace, and the semi-oval sitting area were designed by the architect and founding member of the Accademia, Andrea Palladio (1508-80). He died soon after the work began; his son, Silla took over. [read more]

project: Virtual Recreation of Palladio’s Villa Rotonda

The Villa Rotonda, also known as Villa Capra or Villa Almerico-Valmarana, is one of the best known works by the Renaissance architect Andrea Palladio (1508-80). It was built just outside Vicenza, Italy, in the countryside, as a retirement residence for the clergyman at the Vatican, Paolo Almerico. The work began in c. 1565/6. Although the villa was inhabited by 1569 it was still unfinished by the time of Almerico’s death in 1589. [read more]

project: 3D Reconstruction of the Unbuilt Project Pont destiné à réunir la France à l’Italie (1829) by Henri Labrouste

Henri Labrouste (1801-75) is best known as the architect of two important public buildings in Paris, both libraries. The Bibliothèque Sainte-Geneviève, completed in 1851, demonstrated Labrouste's unconventional use of classical elements, much disputed at the time, and his structural innovation of introducing an exposed iron frame. The Bibliothèque Nationale, completed in the year of his death, is renowned for its eclectic reading room reminiscent of a Seljuk mosque: a light, top-lit round space with slender cast-iron columns, which support a multitude of small domes.
