Tagging history with a <where> and a <when>
We believe students, teachers, researchers and enthusiasts should be able to easily share and retrieve vast listings of publicly available historical information, from different perspectives and in different display formats. If someone wants to see a mapping of 18th century diary entries cross referenced with a collection of international news headlines and regional weather reports, that should be as easy as dining at a buffet. They grab a plate, fill it with various samplings of history, organize and then ingest those histories using the utensils at hand.
for TEI-XML documents that is easy to implement, human readable, and compatible
that give users the ability to easily interact with and share digital humanities research
where users and developers can test applications against similarly encoded TEI space-time data sets
