Bryan is speaking at
There has been an increasing interest in maps as image resources, and the need for geospatial descriptive properties. The idea of "place" connects with almost all resources, not just maps, especially in the humanities landscape. The IIIF Maps Community and Technical Specification groups have focused on use cases and active work in the community since the IIIF + Maps conference at Stanford University in early 2020. Join us for a showcase and discussion of geospatial issues in IIIF, including extensions for and use of the IIIF Presentation 3 API to support first class geospatial data. You will be introduced to members and projects in these communities as well as some of the technical aspects of combining geographic coordinates and IIIF resources.
This session will include the following demos:
• Ruscha Geocoding (Adam Heath, Ean Schuessler)
• ImagineRio (Martim Passos)
• Smapshot (James Taylor, Nicolas Blanc, Loïc Fürhoff)
• RERUM Geolocator (Bryan Haberberger)
• Leventhal Maps (Garret Dash Nelson)
• Chronoscope World (Matthias Müller-Prove)
• OldMapsOnline (Klokan Technologies)

The Cookbook of IIIF Recipes provides users with examples of IIIF Presentation API 3.0 implementations for a wide variety of use cases through detailed implementation notes and example manifests. In the last year, the Cookbook authors have made significant progress by publishing over 25 new recipes to the website. In the first half of this hour-long session, the authors will guide attendees through the Cookbook program, beginning with a tour of the published recipes and how members of the IIIF community might make use of the Cookbook. This will be followed by an overview of the recipe publishing and review pipeline, and a tutorial on how to get involved or contribute to the Cookbook. The second half of the session will focus on active discussion and development of Cookbook recipes, such as talking through or defining new use cases and working through a recipe together as a group.
OngCDH would not be able to operate as lean as it does without a convenient foundation of tools to work access, manipulate, and create IIIF and Web Annotation compliant Objects. The existence of the standard has allowed for useful tools for application logic, such as Manifest in the IIIF-Commons, but we have extended this usefulness to create interfaces, utilities, public data APIs, and templating frameworks for rapid deployment of prototypes, classroom projects, and specialized web portals. This session will not only offer a tour of the principles and parts of our ecosystem, but showcase the pieces of it that are already available to the public and the projects that have benefited from it including: Lived Religion in a Digital Age, a data collection and visualization project around sacred spaces; Glossing Matthew, a paleography project combining transcription, lemmatization, and annotation to visualize biblical glosses; Newberry Library Renaissance Paleography, a self-directed educational module; and the Dunbar Archive, a digital repository combining a dispersed and varied collection of manuscripts, artifacts, locations, and people related to the poet laureate. Completed, active, and forthcoming projects will be demonstrated. Content is designed for developers, but is accessible enough for anyone with an interest in building a bespoke digital humanities project.
