    Next: Digitisation and Exposure of English Place-names

    April 5th, 2012

    Chalice was a short project, funded by JISC, to extract a digital gazetteer, in Linked Data form, from selected volumes of the English Place-Name Survey.

    Happily, the same group of partners, with the addition of Institute of Name Studies, secured significant funding from JISC to complete the scanning, OCR, error correction and text mining of all the existing published volumes of the Survey.

    The project, known as DEEP – Digitisation and Exposure of English Place-names – will run until 2013, when the resulting data will be made available through the JISC-supported Unlock Places geographic search API.
