Tool Focus: Palladio and Simile Exhibit
This hands-on workshop will present two powerful platforms for exploring and presenting your research data using times and dates, locations and relationships between records and digital objects. Finding new and intriguing patterns and knowledge in existing research data can help inform your digital scholarly practice.
For the past decade, Exhibit, originally conceived and developed at MIT, has provided a simple, but powerful means for scholars to analyse and display the relationships between their data, using timelines, and maps and with little or no programming experience. Exhibit allows researchers to share their data by simply presenting it through a browser window without the need to work with sophisticated server configurations.
Emerging from the innovative Mapping the Republic of Letters project at Stanford, Palladio allows researchers to explore their own data through timelines, maps, relationship diagrams and to share their findings through a relatively simple web interface. The sophisticated visualisations possible with Palladio belie its simple and approachable web interface.
Both of these tools provide an opportunity to scholars to explore their own research data in new and potentially beneficial ways.
We will explore both of these tools by first contextualising their operation and role and then carrying out a short hands-on tutorial.
No prior experience with these tools is required and no advance preparation for this workshop is necessary.
Shawn Day, the facilitator of this workshop, will be available for the hour following the workshop to provide face-to-face consultation relating to your research data needs.
Duration: 10.00 – 12.00 / 13.00 (12.00 – 13.00 consultation)
