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).

tool: CHET-C (Chapel Hill Electronic Text-Converter)

Software tool designed to convert digital texts that employ standard typographic editorial conventions into EpiDoc-compliant XML files. A series of regular expressions are applied to the source document and the results are placed into a “shell file” (i.e., a template), which can be customised in advance. The regular expressions are stored in a separate configuration file to permit customisation, but this file is generated from regular expressions embedded in the EpiDoc Guidelines source files. This arrangement permits robust automated and user-driven self-tests within the EpiDoc webapp and facilitates a high degree of coordination across EpiDoc tools. Prior versions exist (MSAccess + VBA and Java, both now deprecated), but more recent development has focused on a JavaScript version that will run without plugins in a modern web browser.
