Hofstra tools: story map and Web based mapping tools for teaching and research



2 working demonstrations using mapping technology to navigate historical data or literature:

  • "Plague Year," which provides a timeline-based navigation tool to step through events recorded from Defoe's A Journal of the Plague Year.
  • Melville in Rome, which enables the exploration of possible routes taken by Melville in between events recorded in his journal of his time spent there.
use of :

a-frightful-number-plague is the name of a CSV file in the _data folder, for this project.
This Jekyll variable (events) is used in the body of this document to render the itinerary table.
The CSV file referenced above generates HTML in the body of this document as well as a JSON data file referenced by JavaScript code.
