The Embedding GeoCrossWalk project sought to provide a deeper understanding of how references to place in structured texts can be researched and automatically extracted. The project aims were threefold.

project: Montréal l'avenir du passé (MAP)

Montréal l'avenir du passé (MAP) was established in 2000 to create an historical GIS research infrastructure for 19th and 20th century Montréal. We have digitized six highly detailed historical maps representing all buildings in the city for 1825, 1846, 1880, 1912, 1949 and 2000. The first three and last have been geo-referenced and we have successfully "peopled" them by linking at the street-scape (1846) or lot level (1880 & 2000) census returns, tax records, city directories and a wide variety of non-routinely generated sources.
