Welcome to the GeoDia User Forum

This blog is set up to serve as a way to collect feedback from users of GeoDia, a spatial timeline of the ancient Mediterranean developed by Adam Rabinowitz (University of Texas at Austin, department of Classics), Peter Keane and Stuart Ross (UT Liberal Arts Instructional Technology Services), and Nick Rabinowitz, using Nick's timemap.js library and the LAITS DASe architecture, with support from two LAITS project grants. It will also serve as a place where GeoDia managers can alert users to additions, changes, and new developments. The GeoDia code itself can be found at http://code.google.com/p/geodia/.

GeoDia at the Pelagios workshop

On March 24th, Adam participated in a one-day workshop organized by the Pelagios Consortium at Kings College London. The focus of the workshop was on linked geodata, and strategies to allow geographical datasets to communicate with each other (mainly through a Resource Description Framework -- RDF -- approach). Adam discussed GeoDia in terms of the modeling of both geographic and spatial information, especially where the two overlap in the interplay of site, period, and region. A video of the talk, and of the other talks delivered, is available through the workshop page of the Pelagios blog.
