Description

The purpose of this meeting is threefold. Firstly, we will discuss the work that WG1 & WG2 have been carrying out in the context of the project, related to spatial information in datasets relevant to scholars working with the RofL. Secondly, we will aim to define a clear strategy to follow in the next stages in order to accomplish the effective identification, disambiguation, extraction and analysis of place names, and possibly other spatial information focusing on these historical datasets. This will inform not only the general research agenda to be established within the project, but also any futurefunding application. Finally, we will aim to establish a combined front with WG2, looking to address common methodological issues both groups are encountering, and possibly design joint solutions.
