This group arose out of discussions around the difficulties faced by small-size projects (particularly those within Universities and High Schools) who lack teaching resources for acquainting students with GeoHumanities-related disciplines, who do not have platforms for sharing and making showcases or are unable to benefit from the existence of a platform for publishing results of their work.
Therefore this group aims to:
* Promote the integration of Pelagios into course syllabi by effectively providing a range of resources for individual and institutional users
* Establishing independent workshops to facilitate integration and the creation of open access content which allows for adaptable “ready made” exercises for students.
* Create and maintain lasting relationships with classroom-focused digital projects
* Maintain a platform of communication and education, by involving users and institutions already interested in spatial humanities projects and learning
* Advance the current situation of Pelagios Commons within a more general audience of non-experts, involving educational distance-learning institutions, Libraries, consortia, and individual users with an interest in self-learning geospatial humanities.

A short vademecum* of scary words in Digital Humanities
Annotation: a scholarly statement establishing a connection between a string in a text (a name, a place, a word, anything of interest) and an external authority that defines, disambiguates and specifies it (e.g. a dictionary, a lexicon, a gazetteer, a prosopography). Linked…[Read more]

Trismegistos has made available the option of csv download of the named entities data retrieved from Epigraphical and Papyrological sources. The data consist of a tabular list of places, ids, pleiades references, coordinates and additional semantic tags (e.g. political status, notes…), and can be directly downloaded from the site.

c-palladino started the topic Working inventory of machine-readable Graeco-Roman geographies in the forum Pedagogy Working Group 8 months, 3 weeks ago
I have compiled and updated an inventory of texts of Graeco-Roman geography that are available (or not) in machine-readable format. It’s still a work in progress, but should you need a text to use for your study, you will find the complete list here.
Some of the texts are on their way to be published in the First 1K Years of Greek Project…[Read more]

The Forum doesn’t allow any fancy formatting, so once this has collected criticism/comments/additions I will study a way to move it and make it visible
Karl, I added the definition :)) It sounds pretty good for the case, however, doesn’t it?

I would add this, which scared me ;^)
vademecum, va·de me·cum; a handbook or guide that is kept constantly at hand for consultation.
I’m happy to contribute to this discussion! I have a long list of scary words that I’ve had to become a little less scared of over the past 6 years. They include:
API – probably the most basic and yet most crucial;
metadata – it has meta in the word, so it’s easier to explain;
URI – I get this now, ever since Charlotte Roueché said to…[Read more]
As Digital Humanists, our everyday terminology consists of words that most of the humanity doesn’t understand, and whose meaning we should not take for granted. What are the scariest words that you have heard in DH conventions and workshops, that took a while for you to get acquainted with?
We will provide a short DH Beginner’s Vademecum with…[Read more]
c-palladino started the topic Would like a hands-on workshop on geo-annotation in the US? Let us know! in the forum Pedagogy Working Group 9 months, 2 weeks ago
We realized that, while in Europe there is an active geoannotating community that knows about Pelagios and geoannotation in general, the US audience seems to be behind.
This is a simple survey especially addressed at US teachers and students (but you can fill in also if you are in Europe and feel neglected!), to let us know:
