    List of outcomes of the Chalice project

    July 8th, 2011

    We put together this long list of different things that happened during the Chalice project, for our last bi-weekly project meeting, on 28th April 2011. The final product post offers an introduction to Chalice.


    These are pieces of work completed to form the project:

    • Corrected OCR for 5 EPNS volumes (*not* open licensed)
    • Quality assessment of the OCR
    • Extracted data in XML
    • Report on the text-mining and georeferencing process
    • RDF representation of extracted data, Open Database License
    • Searchable JSON API for the extracted data
    • Two prototype visualisations
    • Source code for the preceding 4 items
    • Two use case assessments
    • Supporting material for the use case assessments
    • Simple web service for alt-names for ADS
    • Sample Integration with GBHGIS data


    These are less concrete but equally valuable side-effects of the project work:

    • A set of sameAs assertions for Cheshire names between geonames and Ordnance Survey 50K gazetteer to go to sameas.org
    • Historic place-name data to enhance geonames.org with, potentially.
    • Improvements to the Edinburgh Geoparser and the Unlock Text service
    • Pushed forward open source release of the Geoparser
    • Refactoring of the Unlock Places service
    • Discussions and potential alignment with other projects (SPQR, Pleiades, GBHGIS)
    • Discussions with other place-name surveys (SPNS – Wales?)
