tool: OmniPage

A software tool capable of performing Optical Character Recognition (OCR) upon a set of images. It achieves the task by analysing pixel sets and in an image and cross-matching them to a dictionary of words. Omnipage automates large sections of the digitisation process enabling physical objects to be scanned, processed using the OCR software and exported to a document file format. Later versions of the software incorporate image enhancement features to improve scan quality (and recognition results) and better support for complex page layouts and forms.

project: Online Chopin Variorum Edition (OCVE)

OCVE began as an eighteen-month pilot study, from May 2003 to October 2004. Its aim was to explore the potential of technology to trascend the limitations of a traditional printed variorum edition. The research exploited emerging technical capacities for text/image comparison as well as recent musicological advances in cognate projects such as Chopin's First Editions Online and the Annotated catalogue of Chopin's First Editions (Cambridge University Press, 2007).

project: Inscriptions of Roman Tripolitania

This is the republication of a volume of almost 1,000 inscriptions (almost all in Latin) of the Roman period from Tripolitania (Libya): the original volume was published in 1952, but with very little illustration, and very sketchy maps. This re-edition makes no alterations to the academic content. The new elements are that it includes photographs of almost all the texts, and it maps the data onto the map of Libya in Google Maps or Google Earth. [read more]

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]
