MoEML Gazetteer of Early Modern London

"The MoEML Gazetteer of Early Modern London is a descriptive gazetteer in that each place is linked to an Encyclopedia page with a 'thick description' of place. (...) Until now, there has been no digital gazetteer and authority list for placenames in early modern London. Our gazetteer offers a standard for placenames ca. 1550-1650.1 Such a standard enables interoperability across digital projects that include early modern London placenames. Shakeosphere and DEEP have already used our gazetteer to identify toponyms in their data and link to MoEML.

Marine Gazetteer

"Geographic Information Systems have become indispensable tools in managing and displaying marine data and information. However, a unique georeferenced standard of marine place names and areas was not available, hampering several marine geographic applications, for example the linking of these locations to databases to integrate data. The purpose of Marine Regions is therefore to create a standard, relational list of geographic names, coupled with information and maps of the geographic location of these features.

Cairo Gazetteer

"Le référentiel Cairo Gazetteer est un outil pour l’identification et l’indexation des fonds documentaires relatifs aux monuments du Caire, qui soulèvent des difficultés de traitement en raison des multiples variantes issues de la translittération, en caractères latins, des toponymes arabes. Sous la forme d’une table de concordance qui recense les variantes orthographiques des noms des monuments, ce référentiel trilingue (français, arabe, anglais), au format SKOS, permet d’identifier, de décrire et de localiser les 600 édifices classés du Caire."

"The Cairo Gazetteer is a tool for the identification and indexing of documentary collections relating to Cairo's monuments, which raise difficulties of treatment because of the many variants resulting from the transliteration into Latin characters of Arabic toponyms. The form of a concordance table which lists the orthographic variants of the names of the monuments, this trilingual reference frame (French, Arabic, English), in SKOS format, identifies, describes and locates the 600 classified buildings in Cairo.

PeriodO

"PeriodO is a gazetteer of scholarly definitions of historical, art-historical, and archaeological periods. It eases the task of linking among datasets that define periods differently. It also helps scholars and students see where period definitions overlap or diverge."
